bcinlas41st multi pitch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2006


SE route. Second day ever outside on rock w/ pro. Lots of gym time, but this was my second day ever outside on real rock. What a rush. Since there was alot of traffic, we ran our route all over the place. Jam at the chimmey so we moved left and climbed a crack there. There was three of us and we did it in 4.5 pitches; 5.7 being the most difficult. Of course, our lead has about 20 years experience, so he lead the climb free solo with only approach shoes one. We passed several other parties and he belayed me and my other friend at the same time. A life changing experience. We've already started planning the next trip.

Took someone on their first outdoor climb, a very enjoyable peak! Did the classic/original line including the chimney where I got stuck for a few minutes with my camelbak (and provided laughs).

asmrzSE Buttress attempted in winter
Date Climbed: Feb 26, 1997


Miguel Carmona and I skied from Lee Vining to the NPS cabin in Tuolumne Meadows in one day (22 miles) and next day attempted to ski to Cathedral Peak SE Buttress. The snow along the creek (coming down from Budd Lake area) was so deep and unconsolidated, we spent all our energy trying to get to the peak. Turned around short of the buttress next day and skied back to Lee Vining. This was one of the toughest, longest and most tiring trips we both have done in a long time. We thought this could be attempted again, especially since the NPS allows you to stash food and gear at the cabin in the fall and would allow one to ski up there without too much heavy gear.

VladislavMountaineers Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2005


On my visit to Cathedral
I meet wonderful people...
But as we chat merrily,
I crave for solitude...
And from Cathedral crowds
I go on to the silence of Echos.

always a fun climb, which is why i've been doing it once or twice a year for about a decade. most memorable was the linkup of the se buttress and the eichorn direct with the gazelle. good day of moderate climbing.

Very crowded, but still classic and fun. The Eichorn Pinnacle was a blast also.

CompletebumRoute Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: November 5, 2005  Sucess!


One of the most relaxing trips to the mountains I've had this year. Went up the east slope then traversed to the low point between Eichorn and Cathedral where we dropped our packs. From there we stayed as close to the top of the ridge as possible to the summit. We retraced our steps back to our gear and spent an hour eating lunch on a ledge in the sun. From there we downclimbed the south face and hiked to Cathedral lake for some frisbee tossing/napping and back to the car. Never saw a soul all day, a first for me in this area.

Excellent route for my first multi-pitch. We were a team of three with 70m ropes, one leader and two simultaneous followers. What a fast way to get three people to the top of the mtn!

Excellent weather, although a little smoky from forest fires near White Wolf.

Second time in two weeks; this time with steeleman.

What a beautiful day in the backcountry!! We practically had the route to ourselves.

My 3rd time on the summit. This time with Etsuko and Mike. This was Etsuko's first outdoor climb after her injury. She even led one pitch! The day was absolutely spectacular: no wind, sunny, no clouds, in the 70s, practically no crowds. We did the 5.7 variation on the lower part of the face

Awesome rock, scenery, and route. A word of caution-- the Class 4 crack at the end would be Class 5 in many other states, and there is almost no room for error there. Once you commit, it takes seconds to do and is pretty easy to descend.
