North Ridge 5.5 * (5-7 pitches)
From Cathedral Pass scramble up to where it's possible to rope up. Climb the steepest sections of the blunt N Ridge through several steps (short steep gully notches between). Route finding is sometimes a challenge, and there are sections with loose boulders, but several of the pitches have up to 5.5 climbing and it's a fun way to the broad summit plateau of Amphitheatre.


From Cathedral pass climb the ridge to the South. Walk off descent to the SW (long walk around Amphitheatre back to Upper Cathedral Lake. Or descend via a small col SW of the N Ridge (3rd class gully down the north slope).
