Description 

Is the East Buttress crowded and you want to get in some climbing without going anywhere? If so, and you don't mind some lichen and a little loose rock, Stand and Deliver and The Pedestal are two single-pitch 5.8s that you can climb directly below the start of the EB of Middle Cathedral.

From the free climbs book: "A consolation prize if the East Buttress is too crowded. An awkward wide crack start leads to an awesome corner that can be jammed, lie backed, or climbed using the crack and arete."

Location 

These climbs are located on the Pedestal, the ~120-foot high buttress of rock below the start of Middle Cathedral's East Buttress. You are standing on top of the Pedestal when you start the EB.

Protection 

Gear. Need 3-4 inch gear for anchor, the oak is dead.
