Access Issue: Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details
Much of this area is in the Mount Charleston Wilderness Area, learn which crags are within our outside of it before you go. See the BLM Fact Sheetblm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files… for a good overview of what it protects and what that limits, and the Forest Service pagefs.usda.gov/detailfull/htnf… for other information.
Cathedral Rock is the prominent cliff next to the Mt. Charleston Lodge in Kyle Canyon. There is a 40 minute hike up the side of the rock, making it one of the most summitted formations on the mountain. There is one route on Cathedral Rock called the Cathedral Route, which is a bolted three-pitch line that reaches the top.
Park just before the Charleston Lodge at the end of S.R. 157, in the Cathedral Rock parking area. Be sure not to park along the streets as I received a $120 ticket for doing so even though the nearest sign instructing people not to do so was 100 feet away! From the parking lot walk up the stairs and take the trail leading off to the left for the hiking trail or to the right to go to the headwall.
