The Cathedral Rock Climbing
An awesome arch formation with some hard routes. A "Window" on the outside wall frames an awesome view of the surrounding hills and forrest. Routes are located on the "main wall" inside the Cathedral, on the "Window wall" on the inside, and on the "Window wall" on the outside. It's possible to climb here while it's raining... unless it rains too hard.
This thing is hard to miss! Hike along the trail until you pass through a big archway. You're in the Cathedral, baby!
