From La Cumbre  Sucess!

Parked at a small turnout next to the gate for the fire road leading up to La Cumbre. First went up to La Cumbre, then spent a while before I could find the trail to Cathedral. I really enjoyed the hike to/from Cathedral. Class 2 scramble for much of the way. Very steep but enjoyable.

climbed with Arlington Peak  Sucess!

Nice afternoon in the mountains. Enjoyable scrambling on the Dragon's Back up to Arlington, then a short walk to Cathedral!

The second half of an enjoyable duo. We enjoyed watching the clouds build up down below and thinking we might be engulfed, only to watch them dissipate in minutes. We technically climbed Cathedral twice this day, the second summit following our retreat after an unsuccessful attempt at dropping down to the saddle and completing the Cathedral - Cumbre loop. We found the downclimb and use trail off the north side of Cathedral, and it completely disappeared in the thicket.

Cave route  Sucess!

Soloed the "cave route" to the left of S Face route. All 3 pitches had some mid-fifth moves.

Mission Canyon  Sucess!

Great route and fun scrambling once on the SE ridge. Hiked the day after a storm so nice clear views to the ocean. Hiked to Montecito and Cachuma Mtn. afterwards.

Dragon's Back  Sucess!

Have climbed this peak numerous times and completed the loops. Great views of the coast and some of the best scrambling opportunites on any Santa Barbara area peak.
