Came around from unicorn/althuski and then on to the Echo Ridge and Echo Peaks after summiting the Cockscomb. The Cockscomb was definitely the highlight of an awesome day!

Followed the rige around from Unicorn and climbed a line on the backside. Kind of neat coming over the top and rapping/climbing down the regular route

Airy climb! Final peak of the day for Glenn and I, after tagging Tresidder, Columbia Finger, Echo Peaks #3, and Echo Ridge. Outstanding day--along with the Thunderbolt-North Pal traverse, perhaps the best all year.

Followed the ridge around from Unicorn. A great day in the Cathedral Range.

The fourth peak of the day for Matthew and I . We started up the northwest side of the summit, then cut horizontally along a ledge to the chimney leading up to the summit block. We decided to rap down since we had the rope instead of the dicey fourth class downclimb. Only bad point of this peak was a big gust of wind swept off my cap, and I couldn't retrieve it.

Did the "class 4" route on the West Face. Nice climb, but the rock was a bit loose in places, though nothing terrible. The big crystals held! Nice climb. Second peak on my Abbreviated Cathedral Range Solo Traverse

What a beautiful day! After bagging Echo Peaks #5, 7 and 8, climbed Class 4 West Face route with davidkiene and my girlfriend kiwifzzz. Thanks to David for excellent leading and all the hard work on this Class 4 pitch. This is a darn tough Class 4 if you ask me. Traverse from the summit notch to the summit is not for the faint hearted :)

This capped a great day hiking and climbing with fellow SPers Kiwifzzz and mlog. It's hard to beat a day wandering around Budd Creek. A whole lotta fun!

A fun climb with Michael and Dave, unroped to the summit. After Belaying Michael down the West Face, Dave and I rappelled off the north side to head for Unicorn Peak. This was part 4 of our mini-Cathedral Range Tour (minus Echo Peaks and Matthes Crest). Trip Report

Soloed Cathedral SE Buttress, Eichorn, Echo Ridge, Cockscomb and Unicorn with Bob Burd (aka snwburd) and Michael Golden (aka HikeMonkey). Great weather, great climbing, great friends!

I think I got off route on this one, as it felt like class 5 to me. Or maybe I was just frazzled from a long day climbing Cathedral Peak, Eichorn Pinnacle, Echo Ridge, and then Cockscomb. The feldspar crystals embedded in the granite like to snap off on this climb -- use caution. Bob Burd and Dave Daly climbed with me, and gave me a roped belay for the downclimb.

JoshRoute Climbed: East Face (?) Date Climbed: June 23, 2002  Sucess!


This was the third summit of my 16-summit Cathedral Range traverse. I first bagged Unicorn, then Mt Althuski (name?), then ran over to the East Face of Cockscomb. It seemed about 5.6, but the rock was horrible. After that, I ran over to Matthes Crest.

A fine weather day, and excellent climbing for one of Monty's and my first technical climbing forrays. After climbing Cockscomb in the morning, we went to bag all 9 of the summits of Echo Peaks. There is a second summit just east of Cockscomb's true summit that looks almost as high. So I climbed that one as well (a real knife-edge, only a few inches wide) just for fun. Trip Report
