The Cathedral Cave is a notorious sport climbing area at the base of Cathedral Ledge. While the Cave's reputation for chipped and chossy climbing is probably deserved, it still offers a selection of good sport routes. Only the very twisted would travel to Cathedral Ledge solely to climb in the Cave, but if you find yourself with tired legs from slabbin' on the "real" Cathedral trad routes, and if you want a quick upper-body workout, then the Cave might be worth a look.
The Cathedral Cave is located right of the Mordor Wall and left of the Central Wall. A trail, marked with a sign for the Cathedral Cave, heads straight up the hill to the cliff.

I think the crux is about 3/4 of the way across though it is pretty sustained. Originally done with pins, they were stolen AT LEAST 3 times. Now bolted. Kinda strenno but probably the easiest route in the cave....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
