Though not the quality of Kor Route, The Pew is a worthwhile outting. I found pitch 2 (5.7/8 runout) to be a little sketchy with licheny, flared, runout cracks. After this pitch, the wall steepens and becomes more interesting with minor route finding challenges included.


Bring same rack as for Kor Route. Except for pitch 2, The Pew has much better pro than Kor Route; however, it's not quite the quality of Kor Route.

Of the five 5.9s on Cathedral, I found this one to have the most difficult route finding. Every pitch appeared to have 2-3 lines to the next belay. The climbing was very time consuming, since you often place gear in a short crack and then face climb back and forth to keep the climbing on good rock and near the intended grade. I had the feeling of being off and on route the whole time I was climbing.

You don't need a double set of small nuts, since I only placed maybe 3-4 nuts per pitch. It might be nice to have two sets of different types of small nuts to get the perfect placement, though. A triple "0" TCU cam in handy a few times. Jul 12, 2015
