Did the north face route after doing Cathedral Peak on Oct 7, 2014 with Danny Lay.
Linked up with Cathedral SE Buttress. At 5.4 it was the hardest pitch of the day! Spectacular summit.
Just as fun and exhilarating as anticipated. Great views, weather, partner, everything...
With Chad. Super fun.
I did this one on my third time up Cathedral Peak.(d'oh!) Yeah, the first 2 times the folks I was with were kinda done, so we just left without nabbing Eichorn. Their loss, for sure. I dug it a LOT.
Roped this one pitch after soloing Matthes and Cathedral... good call as we were tired and sun was setting. Spectacular day in the mountains.
Originally we were going for the west pillar route but extremely threatening storm clouds made us bail from the base of the route and go up the easier way. Spooooky 5.4 When I topped out I told my partner "that was some pretty f***ed up climbing! ha. Great company. It never even ended up raining that whole day. go figure
7/20/12 Climb N Face with Matt J. This is the best 5.4 I have ever climbed.
Damn, to be 17 again...
Stellar Climbing. Watch your step on the traverse, I may have left some brown stuff behind.
Airy and steep, but huge holds. Trip report
N. Face route, wear a belay parka while belaying! It was FREEZIN!
Rob Yang leading. Exposed!
Fun solo... introduced my brother-in-law to multi-pitch climbing on Cathedral Peak and he had no energy left for Eichhorn Pinnacle... therefore, I soloed. Great climb, but short!
this was my first lead on the North Face, REALLY fun....good air to it as well!
Climbed with Laura Molnar. I led the route -- just as wild as I remember it :)
Note: supertopo says pitch is 160' -- a 50m rope may or may not be sufficient ! Ours wasn't quite .. it was fine for the rap off though.
Sunny and a bit chilly, but fun nonetheless.
Also climbed in August 2006 (followed Calvin Kilcrease after doing Cathedral Peak's SE Buttress).
Climbed after doing SE Buttress. Well worth it if you're already up on Cathedral.
With Rick Kent after doing Cathedral's SE Buttress. This is a super cool route on an awesome spire.
On my first climb in the area, I felt obligated to jaunt over and bag Eichorn. One of the most aesthetic spires anywhere. For all the traffic on Cathedral I'm surprised more people don't climb this thing.
