This is the West most route on the North face of the Cathedral. Again horizontally cracked steep but juggy climbing. I felt it was as hard as Nuptial Vow, next door.


2 bolts are up top for the anchors. 3 draws for the climb. Again, 1/4" buttonheads with homemade hangers.

It appears as if the bolts were replaced sometime in the 2012 window. Solid bolts the whole way. New anchors as of 2012. May 31, 2014

This route now has it's own set of anchors, separate from Nuptial Vow. The old rusty hangers have been replaced. It's now a good addition to the moderates circuit in Ferg. Nov 5, 2012

Good climbing, albeit short crux. The homespun bolts should be replaced and the anchor moved down. Sharing with the route to the right leads to problems. Aug 13, 2008

Yeah these bolts should really be chopped and replaced. They dont look all that safe. I led it though and just didn't fall. Jul 15, 2007

I set up a TR on around the tree that hangs directly over the route. This eliminated the rope drag that was eating our ropes. Jul 4, 2006

I wouldn't suggest anyone led this climb as it, the bolts are very old and rusty. I wouldn't trust them to catch a fall, but you never know until you try I guess.

The climbs works well as a top-rope. To me it's not worthy of the time and materials to re-bolt. Just scramble around and tr it. May 23, 2005
