|Middle Cathedral Rock
Single pitch route that is an excellent warm up for the other routes at the base. Climbs a nice dihedral right of the start of Paradise Lost, and left of the DNB. Invloves finger locks, laybacks and stemming. Watch out for some polished feet during the crux. Gear is solid.
As above, start right of Paradise lost in an obvious dihedral and follow the crack to a bolted anchor. Single 60m rope will get you down.
Standard rack; nuts and cams from 3/8 " size to 2.5"

Not bad if you are in the area.... very slick in spots. Easy to top rope after someone tops out.
Watch for rockfall around the base of Middle.

I'll second Russ' warning on rock fall. Good idea to leave your helmet on in this area.

Great pro from what I remember, short crux. Not a bad first .10 lead in the valley

Excellent climb. Two cruxes... one right at the bottom and then the layback. Great gear. I didn't place anything larger than a #2 camalot.
