Cathedral Rock Rock Climbing
Cathedral Rock is the prominent cliff next to the Mt. Charleston Lodge in Kyle Canyon. There is a 40 minute hike up the side of the rock, making it one of the most summitted formations on the mountain. There is one route on Cathedral Rock called the Cathedral Route, which is a bolted three-pitch line that reaches the top.
Park just before the Charleston Lodge at the end of S.R. 157, in the Cathedral Rock parking area. Be sure not to park along the streets as I received a $120 ticket for doing so even though the nearest sign instructing people not to do so was 100 feet away! From the parking lot walk up the stairs and take the trail leading off to the left for the hiking trail or to the right to go to the headwall.

An obvious line up a corner. 90 feet of fun. Mostly good rock. However, there is some loose rock on the first ledge and just before the last bolt on the mini ledge. It's not chossy, but the loose rock on these ledges suggests that a helmet is a good idea for the belayer.This route would be easy if I wasn't wearing my Fat Jacket...[more] Browse More Classics in NV

An excellent 3 pitch route!
Sustained at the grade. It never stops coming at you especially the 3rd pitch. The route kicked my ass:( Need to get revenge on this one.
Kudos to my RopeGun (Elisabeth)She got it onsite and clean.
A lot of ROCK FALL from the top. (could be from hikers)But
the line seems to be out of the way of the fall line.
Don't forget your helmet.
