Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2011


Via the SE Butt. Ended P6 watching a thunderstorm roll in on us from the west. Pretty spectacular view, very sketchy belaying from the summit block and watching lightning in the distance.

Left the road around 4 pm, started climbing a little after 5, reached the top around 7. No crowds - only a soloist ahead of us on the route. Incredible view and light from the summit with the sun going down! 4.5 hrs RT.

Easy scramble up via Budd Lake, to the back side more interesting but still easy scramble. Summit block isn't that exposed and has excellent holds. Would have liked to have done the SE Buttress... Continued with Cathedral Range traverse after dropping down the south side via a holdless chimney at the Eichorn saddle.

i was hiking with my family to cathedral pass but when my brother and i reached the base of the west face we decided to climb it reached the notch between eichorn and the summit where my brother stayed and i clambered up to the summit...the summit block was pretty sketch without a rope but i survived and descend to my brother and back down via the west face

Will never do SE buttress on a Saturday or in the middle of summer. Had fun though, just spent as much time waiting as climbing.

guided a party of 3 (one newb, one solid follower). another party of 2 with a weak follower passed us by going a harder way then blocked our escape route while the storm pushed in. had to bail 40 ft from the summit and get off before the horizontal rain and thunder were accompanied by lightning. that never happened, thankfully. had to leave a #2 Camalot though =/.

climbed with PellucidWombat. freezing winds and hail on and off all day kept other parties off the route; on party started up and bailed after one pitch, and other groups walked up to the base and gazed up at us, then walked away. at least we summited with the buttress and summit all to ourselves!

This was the first peak we tackled as part of a holiday weekend trip to Yosemite. We then hit Eichcorn (of course), El Cap (Pine Line), Half Dome (Snake Dike), and Royal Arches. Great start to an unforgettable trip!

End of a partial Cathedral traverse. Skipped Matthes, and couldn't quite do Echo #9. I'd like to come back and solo the buttress; maybe next year. Trip report

Next time I will climb with a rope so I can finish the last 10 feet. Super fun scramble and the view is stunning.

Despite the winds and occasional snow/hail flurries, the weather stayed just good enough for us to finish the SE Buttress. Fun route! The chimney was quite the pain in the butt with a pack on, though, but good practice leading offwidth as well!

Good climbing, beautiful day. My partner, Jonas, is spanking new to climbing and this was his first technical summit - it was great to see him enjoying the whole process.
