The Minuteman, Liberty Bell Massif. On July 30, Bill Lingley and I ascended the Minuteman, which lies just south of Liberty Bell and east of Concord Tower. Beginning at the apron’s left-hand base, the route climbs for three leads to a group of evergreen trees. A long crack to the right leads to the tower itself. Climbing steep cracks from the right to a bush, the route continues through a prominent overhang and jams a perfect two- inch crack to the summit. The descent is best made by rappelling and down-climbing the Minuteman’s north slopes until it is possible to cross the gully below Liberty Bell. Continued down-climbing finds a bush which anchors the final 150-foot rappel. A selection of fifteen pitons should include four 2? angles for this III, F8, A1 route.
