Ascent Trip ReportClimbed with Nick (pitch 3) and Swapnil (pitch 1/2) - I just followed. :) We originally wanted to do the SW route up Liberty Bell but it was pretty crowded so we decided on this. We went up as a 3-man party which was interesting as the middle person. Used 2 ropes. We combined pitch 1 and 2 into a long one. Rope drag got pretty bad after pitch 1. The bearhug move on pitch 3 was fun! Chains at the summit still look good. We only did 2 rappels to reach the bottom again. Tied our ropes together for rappel 1 and then a single rope for rappel 2. The new approach trail the Access Fund is working on is amazing and easy to follow.
