DescriptionThe unsuspecting tourists looking east off of Cathedral's tourist overlook may not realize that there is a nice ledge 30 feet below them.... This is the ledge that Recompense (5.9) finishes on.... There are a number of fun, short routes that start from here great for adding a pitch on to routes like Recompense, Upper Refuse (5.5), or The Book of Solemnity (5.10), or some non-committing cragging with killer exposure....
Whether you want to test you finger crack skills on the Prow Finish, or give perspective to a head strong beginner on Comeau's Finish (5.7), one thing will be consistent when you get to the top on a weekend day you will be the hero of the crowd on top, and you will be asked a bunch of questions like "how long did it take", "did you just climb that", "is there someone else down there" as you yell down to, and belay your second....
Take the questions in stride and enjoy the spot light....
