Description 

This beautiful route ascends two pillars of ice.

Approach:

Park at the Cathedral Rock Trailhead. Ascend the steps to the trail sign. Follow the trail to the left, passing two switchbacks before joining a second trail. Continue to follow this trail up passing two more switchbacks. The route can be found directly above the third switchback. Approach should take 20-30 minutes.

Route:

Ascend the central pillar of ice to a large ledge. The first pitch is often in WI 4 conditions. From the ledge, continue up a second pillar to a log. Belay from the log. Pitch two can usually be climbed at WI 3. Both pitches are easily top-roped. To top-rope the first pitch, ascend an easy trail climbers left of the falls. To top-rope the second pitch, ascend a trail left of the cliff-band, working your way back right as the steep rocks fade away.

Descent:

One is able to walk off to the left on either pitch.

Echo has not yet touched down, but it is still nice to see ice!
Two short flows have formed up the hill from Echo, easy but fun.
