Matt LemkeSunset hike after climbing the SW buttress on Cathedral  Sucess!

We wanted to climb one of the rock routes just above Cathedral Lake, but climbing the W buttress of Cathedral took a little longer than we wanted so we walked up at sunset. Gorgeous view of the route we had just climbed! Long day getting both these peaks from our camp at Andrews Pass.

3 days out with Heather. We camped both nights at upper Cathedral Lake. The first day it rained on us continuously.

Both summits offer amazing views. We had perfect late summer weather, and got some amazing photos. This area of the Pasayten is by far the most impressive. Upper Cathedral Lake, at the bottom of the shear face of Amphitheater, has some fantastic camping spots as well.

Date Climbed: Apr 15, 2003


Skied up easy side years ago while skiing all over the area. This is another area perfectly suited to backcountry skiing: lots of open, arctic-like rolling terrain, and dryer snow. It also unfortunately suffers from trespassing by snowmobiles on occassion, especially over toward the east near Horseshoe Basin.

applewoodascent of North Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2011


My daughter and I climbed the N Ridge route (beginning from Cathedral Pass) and had a pretty good time - the route finding wasn't always clear, and the pitches were often very short, with some potentially loose boulders, but we had fun and encountered up to 5.5 climbing in a couple of spots. The best part was topping out and exploring the long South ridge (main summit and beyond) for a couple of hours. It is a beautiful mountain. The worst part was seeing the horse damage to the alpine meadows on the descent (we hiked out down the main ampitheatre to the SW and around to Cathedral Lake and Pass on the main trail) - I was shocked to see people ride their horses into such a fragile zone, and then don't even stay on the trails...
