Route Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2002
Day 2 of the 2002 Mountaineers Challenge and another fine day of climbing. Even found the correct way around the part I had sketchy holds on last time. Descended Cathedral's South Face enroute to Echo Peaks. Trip Report.
After dusting my hands off from the summit of Cathedral (thanks to the party in front of me interring someone's ashes!), I couldn't resist "posing" for a 'heel-clicking' photo atop Eichorn. Very nice! What's with people leaving things to smoke in the summit register box? Aren't they high enough?!?!?
I've climbed this one many times -- most recently on June 23. It was the last summit of my 8 hour 21 minute, car to car, solo Cathedral Range Traverse. Summits: Unicorn, Mt Althuski (sp?), Cockscomb, Matthes Crest (North Ridge), Echo Ridge, Echo Peaks (8, 9, 7, 6, 5, 1, 2, 3, 4), Cathedral Peak (SE Buttress), Eichorn Pinnacle.
