cp0915Twice: SE Butt & W Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 26, 2007

W Face: A classic peak. Fun route.

Screamed obscenities at a persistent marmot going after the food in my pack I left at the top of the chute while I belayed my g/f up the summit block. G/f brought a small rock up with her, which I chucked at a nearby crag to scare the little guy off. It worked.

Off to Medlicott Dome, Pothole Dome and Lembert Dome after this...

Peak #1 of a 10-peak Yosemite-based weekend. Great weekend out.

-8/30/08 - Returned to climb the SE Buttress with Rick Kent. Then Eichorn Pinnacle. Eichorn was the more interesting "peak" of the two, I think, though the SE Butt was a fine route.

Every time I have led a simul climb of Cathedral. 20 or so pieces in one run bottom to top. Like someone said to me about a similar peak.....it gets harder, and it gets higher, but it doesn't get any better.

Early start so we were the first on the route. No real issues - straight. The chimney is the best part. You can do it by staying outside the chimney - a lot easier. Will take my son to do it this season.

This is a fine High Sierra route. The last 20ft. is the crux, but the Jams are solid.

After a dusting of snow Tuolumne was empty but open. The trailhead was devoid of cars when I arrived and unlike my previous trip up Cathedral a few weeks earlier I had this normally crowded mountain to myself! Patches of snow on the slabs added a bit to the routefinding. The summit solitude, sublime.

Summited with wife and cousin. Great climb despite the crowd. Had the summit to ourselves as one of the last parties of the day. Descended mountaineers route into a pleasant Sierra summer storm.

Windy but spectacular -- only person on the mountain on a Sunday. Quick r/t from the trail head -- only 3.5 hours but lots of fun.

Fun, fun climb and the views were outstanding. Too bad there's no summit register, but it would probably fill up too fast anyway due to the popularity of the peak.

Awesome climb with Lisa, especially with the thunderclouds keeping a comfortable distance. Tenaya Peak two days earlier was the perfect warmup. Repeated 8/14/09 with Marina under perfect Sierra blue.

We had to deal with a large volume of wind which made this climb seem more like work than fun.

I have been to the base before, but we bailed because we did not wish to become involved with the Multi-pitch, multi-epics going on above. Thursday Aug 10 was a lot better, we left camp around 1 pm, and did the short hike to the base and found ONLY about 4 parties on the climb. Ryan decided to start on the right side so we could avoid the slow parties who were clogging up the starting cracks. (One team had enuf gear to do the Zodiac!) Two long pitches up 5.7 knobs put us at the chimney. I was pretty happy as I looked down and saw the other two parties still engaged with the cracks. We had made the right decision. After the chimney pitch, two soloists came up behind us and all route finding decisions were over and I chased em up the last pitch via some fine knob climbing. The view was fantastic! While sitting on the top, I could imagine the grand adventure Chuck Wilts had on the FA 66 years before! We made it back to the car around sunset, it had been another good day of climbing.

Superb half day climb. Thought the summit block was easy 4th class.
