      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] LIBERTY - The path of freedom 06/01/2019

Recommended Posts

Trip: LIBERTY - The path of freedom

Trip Date: 06/01/2019

Trip Report:

 

Sometimes you see a mountain enough that it must be climbed.  Such was the case for @Kit and I and this mountain called Liberty.  Both of us have been driving by it for more years that we care to think about. That, and who doesn't want to be free??

 

Despite the reports of horrendous brush, washed out roads, and failed attempts, we were smitten.  What is wrong with us?  Well, we don't have time to cover all that here.  But, if Liberty is wrong, I don't want to be right!  It helped that we happened to stumble upon an actual pleasant route up and down the peak, with minimal brush. Really!  I even recorded a track for all you obsessive P2K baggers out there.  So go get it before the brush reclaims the 4130 road once again..... 

(I'll add captions in time)

Gear Notes:
We brought a rope and used it in a couple places to rap on the way down, mainly because we had it. We didn't rope for the two 4th class bits on the way up. It is actually likely better after the snow is gone and the crossing of Canyon Creek low.

Approach Notes:
Walk 4130 for 4 miles or so until you intersect the GPX track I've posted. It will serve you well to the summit and back. A couple more years and the road will be totally brushed in and very annoying. Go now!  LIBERTY!!!!! 6_1_19 8_30_51 AM.gpx
