Rice Climber

My second summit of Cathedral via the SE Buttress. Certainly not my last either.

We had so much fun. There were a number of people on the route, but there are so many ways to climb it, it wasn't a problem at all.

A very fun scramble. High class 3 slabs to the crack. The crack was easy. I just wedged an arm in it and pushed up with my feet. Made it in like 10 seconds. Fun stuff.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007


The first one was a bit of an epic involving a descent in the dark with a single headlamp...the second time was a cruise, did the 5.7/5.8 finish up the undercling crack on the left side to spice things up a bit and were back at the car by 3.

simuled climbed twenty feet off the end in a party of three. Climbed in four belays just under three hours, passed several parties and got off just before the rain.

Crack on the summit block was easier than I expected. I thought the crux was the short traverse to the base of the summit block crack. Perfect weather. I only saw one other party and they were on the SE Buttress.

Climbed this with my brother. What a sweet line. Perfect granite and amazing views. This is one of my all time favorite routes.

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.
