This route can be combined with a climb of Liberty Bell or Lexington Tower. If doing one of these combos, please use the Liberty Bell/Southwest Face or Lexington Tower/North Face route/place and choose an appropriate title from them.

APPROACH

Follow the Blue Lake Trail about 1.5 miles to a small meadow. Locate the climbers path left, just after a small stream. Follow path up through slabs, talus and meadow to below the gully descending from between Liberty Bell and Concord Tower.

The route begins at the top of the notch between Concord Tower and Liberty Bell. The climber's trail up the gully is usually snow filled and can be icy until late June. Rockfall is high after snow melt.
