Independence Route and East Face Info

The Independence Route, along with Thin Red Line, and Liberty Crack, comprise the 3 classic bigwall aid routes to breach one of the proudest faces in the Cascades, the eastern aspect of Liberty Bell. Despite other routes and variations with good climbing, the wall remains fairly obscure and quiet, seeing few climbers and few redpoint ascents. In reality, Liberty Bell's big wall is an excellent climbing face with a laughably short approach, many fixed anchors, and remaining potential.
