Great climb. Lived up to all the advertisment. A Tuesday in late September, and still had 3 other parties near by. Didn't lead the chimney pitch too gracefully though ... :-) The rest of the climb rocked. With GregS - thanks Bro!

My fifth trad route - we climbed with three and split the leads. A clusterf**** of very cool and interesting people. As the smallest of the crew I got to lead the chimney... my first chimney and it was so much fun!! Perfect rock, incredible views, great lead for beginners. The summit block scared me a bit -- not a huge fan of downclimbing. But a great learning experience!

Climbed it with my girlfriend in the afternoon. Lightning hit the ground at Cathedral Lakes and I've never been so scared climbing. The last 30 feet of the climbing is so exposed and awesome. A must do.

Climbing solo and in hiking boots I made it to the summit block but did not want to attempt the final 15 ft unroped, especially not having been on this rock before. The rating is Class 4, but it looked more like low 5th class. With 1000ft of exposure, it just wasn't worth the risk to me. I hope to return with a rope and partner next time. It was great fun just getting to the summit block though.

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

My buddy Brad and I climbed Muir's Route as part of a multi-summit warmup for the Palisades. The approach to the saddle was loose, but the slabs were clean; the traverse and the climb of the class 4 crack to the summit block were much easier than expected. There was exposure on the traverse, but the excellent holds made this trivial; the left crack to summit had many places to place pro and could be easily removed on the down climb. It seemed like other climbing parties chose to climb the right crack; this didn't look easier or faster.

Attempted this with Brian as part of a day trip out of Yosemite Valley. We didn't have time for the summit block, so this doesn't count I guess. Next time, I'll give myself more time as I remember us having to pick our way out of the forest by the light of our Indiglos BION.

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.

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.

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.
