Amphitheater, Cathedral, The Pope, Remmel Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2014
3 days out with Heather. We camped both nights at upper Cathedral Lake. The first day it rained on us continuously. The scramble on Cathedral was short but very interesting and memorable. Klenke did a great job in his description.
My daughter and I climbed the NE Ridge of Cathedral Pk. and had a great outing. The route was easier than it looked like it might be (none of the intimidating vast exposure of the South and East faces), but each of the 7 pitches had at least a couple of 5.3 moves and some easy scrambling. The rock and protection was good throughout, and the view from the top was wonderful. We were glad to have a rope for the top moves of the walk up...
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
