How novel......I'm back! Woke up to a balmy 27 F in Tuolumne but it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day (daytime high 67 F)! Gotta bash the idiot who BURIED a .75 Camelot Jr. above the chimney........Gee, afraid to take a nose dive off a 5.5 move?!?!? Funny....I've recovered more gear from Cathedral than any other peak. Hmmmm......Finders, keepers!

This is one of my favorite climbs in Tuolumne. It was a sunny day with a very chilly wind and I found my teeth chattering while belaying. The route was a straight forward, I believe, 5.7 with plenty to grab onto. And did I mention, there were no other climbers in sight?!

Climbed with Dave Daly. Fun climb with a good partner. Who could ask for more? It was crowded below us but didn't bother us much.

My 33rd and fastest climb on the Southeast Buttress: 1:44:07, car to car. What a blast!

Nothing like great partners, firm rock and the warm sun! Soloed with Michael and Bob.

Free Solo (Trio?) climb with Bob Burd and Dave Daly. I'd climbed it once before, roped up, with Monty.

Soloed with Michael and Dave. No flailing this time - I guess I learned something after the two previous times this summer. 2hr from TH to summit. Trip Report

The SE Buttress being too crowded, I climbed the South face route with a friend. Short and easy.

Nice hike with Sven Feldmann - on a Friday afternoon, we met only one other party that had just ascended the Southeast Buttress. We hiked in via Budd Creek, and out via the JMT. The latter is definitely longer, but the sunset over Fairview Dome was worth the slight detour.

This is a magnificent climb, but I will never again do it on the weekend. By the time we got to the chimney pitch, there were a half dozen teams above and below. Once I finally was able to climb through the chimney there were four belay stations set up above it. The climb took three times longer then it should have, although there were many interesting people to talk to. Snwburd and another guy solod the route.

Day 2 of the 2002 Mountaineers Challenge. Soloed for the second time, got off-route, flailed at the crux, same story. Lots of folks on the route. Two parties waiting on the ground, I passed a rope of two, and met two others soloing on the route (one was coming down!). Still took me an hour. I'm slow. Trip Report.

Easy but very nice climb. I particularly enjoyed the last pitch and the summit block - outstanding views.

Third time up, and actually enjoyed all the traffic on the way up. All the teams were conversing and calling each other by first names. We had lines crossing from every which-a-way. Half way up the route, though, we could see cumulo-nimbus clouds forming over Mt. Dana. You should have seen us all scramble like ants when the thunder started rolling across the meadow .

Had the route to myself on a Thursday morning, and my first free solo of a class 5 route. Much fun.

Cathedral Peak was summit #15 of my Cathedral Range traverse (8:21 car-to-car). Every time I climb the SE Buttress, I take a slightly different route. After bagging Cathedral, I tagged Eichorn Pinnacle then jogged back to the parking lot.

Never have done the 5.6 chimney due to crowds. A beautiful day no matter how many people.

Such a fun route, and such a pointy summit. This peak opened our eyes to the alpine rock possiblities surrounding us......Conness and Matthes Crest beckoned......

6 years later we climbed it again, taking some friends with us who had never climbed in Toulumne before. It was with some satisfaction that we pointed out the surrounding peaks and domes we had climbed in the intervening years. Even more satisfying was to witness our progress as climbers. The climb seemed so much shorter, simpler, and faster than our first time.
