Fun route that initially wanders a bit right of the bolt line. Cool horizontal features typical of Ferguson's.


Protection 

Draws.


Location 

Bolt line rising from the creek immediately right of the crack Mission Impossible on the left side of the north face of the Cathedral.

This was put up by Scott Keller and Jake Anderegg (1994-ish?). Contrary to the guidebook, it goes straight up to the chains, as opposed to moving left into the corner. Originally, this was a runout but I added 1 bolt here in 2002.

Fun route. Taking the path of least resistance it is fairly graded. I went slightly right between the first and second bolts. To go direct would be very hard and carry dangerous deck potential. Go straight up to triple chain anchors.

One of my favorites. The route goes a bit right of the first two bolts.

Good fun must-do route. I also stayed slightly right between the first couple bolts.. Which seemed like the natural way. But if you want to get to the third clip, you'll have to bust out onto the crimpy face at some point. I wouldn't of wanted to of blown that third clip either...

A surprising amount of variety for such a short route.

This is a pretty good route. I did twice. Once, using all available holds and wandering a bit to the right (fairly .11a). Then I did it straight up, using only the crimps directly below the bolts (no jugs off to the side). That made it significantly harder (maybe .12a).

Fun, I agree with the 11a rating if you go to the right. I agree with Sam if you go straight up it is probably 12a. However, the crux is protected by the second bolt and while there may be decking potential clipping the third it eases up after the crux... All in all to go straight up is probably 12a PG13, but i thought it was way more fun than going right.
