sbkelleyCathedral Rock via Esperero  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2009


All that work is worth it for that final half-mile. The Esperero Trail is relentless, but the views get better and better above Bridal Veil Falls. Trail is in great shape now from here to the start of the bushwhack, so kudos to whoever fixed it up. The last bit up the summit tower was great fun, and the views off this one are incredible. Lots of work for CR, but enjoyed it in the end.

oldaditWobbly Jug  Sucess!


Climbed a long, long time ago with Guy Cloutier and Jerry Schuster.
We started in the heat of the day, and were soon short on water. Filled up from a lucky drip at our camp site, Bridal Veil falls.
Topped out next day, but Guy and Jerry needed a rope for last
pitch, and it was in the car. Back at camp the water jug had shifted away from the drip, which delayed our march out.

imikeDamn Car Keys!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 15, 1999


Great hike but last time up there with friends, one noted that she'd lost her car keys... and it figured that they'd fallen out of her pocket during her "relief" stop... way up at the top of Esperero, so... I had to run back up and sure enough, there they were. Not the right hike to have to add extra miles on to.

RedTreacheryGreat Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2008


Really great hike. Started at 6:00 AM and finished around 8:00 PM. Coming down in the dark is never fun, but it only happened due to my inability to leave the summit because I loved it so much. Wouldn't attempt this in the summer as all the trees are burnt down and therefore negative amounts of shade.

Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2006


We camped out in near Bridal Falls and headed up towards Cathedral Rock in the morning. Soon after this point, the trail dissapears. Much of the trail is overgrown, washed out, and the few Cairns you will find aren't there when you need them.

Almost made it, we hiked on without the trails, but had to come down due to time contraint!
