Hi everyone!

I'm looking to attempt Gravity Ceiling on Higher Cathedral sometime next summer or the summer after depending on injury recovery time and other life restraints, and I'm wondering if anyone has any beta or information on the route, including gear recommendations. I believe Cedar Wright put it up, but I haven't heard of any other free ascents. Are there any? I'd love to talk to someone who's done it, free or not.

This is all of the information I have on Gravity Ceiling, and it isn't much:

I'm also on the hunt for other like test pieces that are a bit shorter (preferably below five pitches) around the West, or just fun roof climbs (crack or not) to do. I was looking at Fiddler on the Roof in Fremont Canyon and it appears as though with the new beta it's 13-, so that could be a good project close to home (Montana). I'm not looking to try anything harder than 5.13-, and I'm certainly more of a crack climber than a sport climber, but anything would be good!

Thank you for your help!
Tina
