Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2008


My wife and I attempted Cathedral Peak in September 2008. I had not researched that the easiest way is from the east side of the mountain. We tried to ascend the west side as far as we could but turned back when the falling risk was too high. Instead we went around the peak in a counterclockwise direction. It was still a bit sketchy, but we made it around to more moderate terrain. Then we descended to the nearby Lake and then hiked back by another lake and then to the trailhead.

Early start, first on the route but hardly first to finish. Top was worth it and downclimb was adventurous. The hike in somehow doubled, maybe tripled on the way out, how does that happen?

Beautiful short hike. The class 4 block on the summit took me a few tries, but I managed on the crack on the left. Very windy from the South. I was hardly able to stand up for a few seconds just to be able to say that "I stood on Cathedral Peak."

Mountaineer's route. Couldn't get started up the final class 4 chimney 3 weeks prior in hiking boots. Lesson learned- no more class 4 without rock shoes.
The rock at the base of the chimney is getting a little smoothed out from so much traffic. Once on the 1st step, it becomes much easier, closer to class 3. The narrow slot adjacent to the chimney makes for an easy step off the summit blocks for the downclimb. Holds are all there, no need for protection.

Contemplated the SE buttress, but wasn't quite feeling it so just took the descent trail up, didn't realize it goes within one or two hundred feet of the summit. The 15 foot summit crack was cool, but other than that this was 98% hiking and 2% climbing. Kinda wish I'd at least tried the butt, guess I'll have to wait until next year with Tioga Pass likely closed for the winter.

A small party, we took the 4th class route up. We had to wait in the cold wind for nearly an hour for a window of time to open for us to summit, since party after party were coming up the class 5 sections. A hugely popular peak.

Great weather. lots of people. very airy summit. ropes would have probably been useful for the last 10-15 feet. but fun nonetheless

Did the original route - fun and has a little of everything. I got to lead the $ chimney pitch. For a Monday in mid-Oct it was somewhat busy, but that's to be expected. Awesome climb and amazing views from a real airy summit block. Good day!

Last leg of the Tenaya-Matthes-Cathedral Linkup. An outstanding route and very fun, definitely my favorite out of those three. It did help starting the climb after 5pm as there was no one else on route. I was on the summit by 6pm and back at the car (Tenaya Lake) by 8pm.

Probably one of the coolest summits that I have had the chance to stand on. Amazing views in an amazing location. The SE Buttress had about 50 people on it the day we climbed it!

Three parties waiting for Chimney so we went up

exciting! Great pro.
