Description

Sitting directly above the lower Cathedral Trail parking lot, this golden tower stands out against the evergreens with Cathedral itself soaring above. As of now, the cliff contains four quality routes all over 85 feet, and there is potential for about a half dozen other lines.

Getting There

Head up the Cathedral trail until it splits toward Little Falls. Take the LF trail until you're almost below the tower (it will be obvious on the skyline), and then cut back sharply left on a faint(er) trail. 50 yards along, turn right onto a faint climbers' trail, and follow this to the wall. 7-10 minutes.
