|Higher Cathedral Rock
It has been a few years. After I did the route, I asked Cummins about the three stars. OK well, a decent route all the same.
First pitch, gear at the bottom, run out 5.9 probably PG 13. Second pitch, a few committing moves off the belay, and a funny bolt or two. Use a few TCUs. Third pitch seems harder than 11C. The rock is loose, and some pieces probably came off. Second TAKE ASCENDERS. Runout after the crux. Small to medium cams. I combined the next two pitches. The arete is dangerous-I thought 10C R-take RPs. The final pitch was much easier.
Small to medium cams and nuts, RPs.

Did this one many years ago. Sept 97 I believe. However still remember it as being an amazing route.

This route is excellent! Perfect jugs and edges on bullet granite. Small cams and nuts help tame moderate runouts. The arete pitch is magical. Go climb it and help keep the lichen at bay!
