|Ya Dave, it was fun climbing this and celebrating your retirement on top!! The champagne and block ice was kinda heavy to climb with, but worth it!!|

|Whoopee!! Freedom from Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. Celebrated my retirement from the military after 20 years of service on top of Eichorn. Those that shared the moment: Craig Peer, Michele Beaty, Roger Hayashi and Jason "Fall Guy" Laird. Thanks to Craig and Alice, we enjoyed champagne on the summit. Michele did her best impression of "The Mummy Returns". BTW Chele, nice job climbing with your hand in a cast!! Sorry, the summit register wasn't signed in blood this year....|

1.5 pitches. 4 old pitons just past belay, around on the NW corner. Perfect weather. Great summit with especially interesting register. Dragged a 8-9 ml rope for the 165 ft. double-rope rap off the top, which was well-protected with slings & backed-up with double rap rings.
I've wanted to do this route for a long, long time -- it was worth the wait.

|kullaberg||Route Climbed: west pillar .10b, 6-7 pitches Date Climbed: nov 99|
|seldom done route on an incredible fin of granite in yosemite backcountry.|
this one is highly recommended.
the second pitch is .9 OW, and its reputation may keep the crowds away. but it's not bad. #4 camalot is plenty, and the moves are supported by good faceholds. actually a fine pitch.
don't miss the awesome flake/stemming on the penultimate pitch (apparently it can be bypassed).

|As Bob posted, I got the date wrong when signing the register in BLOOD! Walt Starr Jr. would be proud! But somebody had to be the 'tough guy' in this trio of misfits. Hey!....at least there's DNA evidence I was there!|

|I did indeed want to climb this one badly. Strangely, I also wanted to climb it free solo. This was much scarier than the SE Buttress of Cathedral Peak due to the exposure. I asked for, and received, a belay for the downclimb. The 37m rope allowed me to descend protected until the climb eased off to fourth class.|

|Soloed with Michael and Dave. Michael wanted to climb this one badly, so somehow it grew to include Cathedral, Echo Ridge, Cockscomb, and Unicorn. There was no pen or pencil in the register, so Sargeant Dave went for the Semper Fi move and cut himself to provide a useable medium with which to leave our mark. Trip Report|

|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?!?!?|

|This is one of those peaks that seem improbably difficult but turn out to have an easy route to the top. It was great fun free soloing this on a fine spring day. Trip Report|
