Followed the ridge around from Unicorn. A great day in the Cathedral Range.
The fourth peak of the day for Matthew and I . We started up the northwest side of the summit, then cut horizontally along a ledge to the chimney leading up to the summit block. We decided to rap down since we had the rope instead of the dicey fourth class downclimb. Only bad point of this peak was a big gust of wind swept off my cap, and I couldn't retrieve it.
Did the "class 4" route on the West Face. Nice climb, but the rock was a bit loose in places, though nothing terrible. The big crystals held! Nice climb. Second peak on my Abbreviated Cathedral Range Solo Traverse
What a beautiful day! After bagging Echo Peaks #5, 7 and 8, climbed Class 4 West Face route with davidkiene and my girlfriend kiwifzzz. Thanks to David for excellent leading and all the hard work on this Class 4 pitch. This is a darn tough Class 4 if you ask me. Traverse from the summit notch to the summit is not for the faint hearted :)
This capped a great day hiking and climbing with fellow SPers Kiwifzzz and mlog. It's hard to beat a day wandering around Budd Creek. A whole lotta fun!
A fun climb with Michael and Dave, unroped to the summit. After Belaying Michael down the West Face, Dave and I rappelled off the north side to head for Unicorn Peak. This was part 4 of our mini-Cathedral Range Tour (minus Echo Peaks and Matthes Crest). Trip Report
Soloed Cathedral SE Buttress, Eichorn, Echo Ridge, Cockscomb and Unicorn with Bob Burd (aka snwburd) and Michael Golden (aka HikeMonkey). Great weather, great climbing, great friends!
I think I got off route on this one, as it felt like class 5 to me. Or maybe I was just frazzled from a long day climbing Cathedral Peak, Eichorn Pinnacle, Echo Ridge, and then Cockscomb. The feldspar crystals embedded in the granite like to snap off on this climb -- use caution. Bob Burd and Dave Daly climbed with me, and gave me a roped belay for the downclimb.
