ApproachSee Cathedral Ledge Main Page.
To approach Thresher, the North End Slab and the North End Pillars go up hill to the cliff at the iron gate 200 yards past the right turn with the info "hut". If there is snow on the road, park on the main road where the plowing ends and hike in. Even then it only takes 15-20min. to get there.
Whe you get to the cliff above the gate from lert to right you'll see:
Thresher - North End Slab - North End Pillars
