Approach

This route is on the Cerberus Wall and right across the shuttle bus stop at Big Bend. From the stop walk just a short distance down canyon and cross the road. Take the trail with a climber sign on it up to the wall and turn left until the base of the route. This route is the right facing corner just to the left of Fails of Power.



Route Description

 
Fathedral
Finger crack start.
This is quite a stiff and long route. The climbing is very varied. It starts with a difficult finger crack and one has to look for edges on the face and corner. After the opening finger crack there are few hand jams until the offwidth. Passing the offwidth requires that you stem with your right foot way highand push yourself beyond the wideness. Above the offwidth the crack becomes thin hands all the way to the anchors. The route goes into the shade in the afternoon just like the other routes on the Cerberus Wall.

Essential Gear

Route felt hard so used three sets of #0.5, 0.75 and #1 camalots, two #2 and one #3 camalots and one each of #4 and #5 camalots for the offwidth sections. One 60m rope is sufficient to climb this route.
