Description

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.

All the routes in the cave will stay dry in a light rain. Unfortunately, after extended periods of rain, most routes seep badly.

Getting There

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.
