Climbed on a trip with the Outing Club from Brunswick HS. Great group, great mountain, great times!
I knew this involved scrambling but didn't know that it was this long and challenging. Lots of fun and adventure, loved it
I actually climbed this Mountain in 2002 with some friends before being deployed to Iraq. I am logging this 9 years later because I joined the highpointers club and want to log every climb on this great site as well. The only thing I can remember from the climb was that it started me on a love of hiking that has stayed with me ever since getting back from Iraq in 2004!!
We originally planned on ascending the Dudley Trail but rain and time were not our side so we went up the Cathedral Trail. Great scramble and awesome views.
If you like scrambling...this is the only way to get up this mountain!
My daughter and I did this, then traversed to summit ridge, as part of our highpoint quest in the late 1980s. This climb was memorable, and the scramble up this route was certainly a big part of that wonderful memory.
So much fun!! Reminds me of Kelso Ridge on Torreys Peak in CO.
Ascent of Cathedral
Had a good day
Descended down this trail with my brother from the Baxter Peak Cutoff Trail, even though descending this was not recommended.
So much fun! The scrambling up the three cathedrals was straightforward, yet invigorating. I can't think of a better way to get up the mountain than this route!
My favorite Katahdin hike... Ascend Cathederal and descend KNife Edge
Cathederal Trail one of the best scrambles in the East, up there with Trap Dike, Colden.
no more than class 3 with class four possibilities if you like.
