nice climb. took longer than expected. we thought we might do the thumb, but didn't have time.
Summitted with Jack - very enjoyable climb. Eichorn's Pinnacle was the highlight for me, by far! The views are fantastic and the climbing very clean. Three parties at 05:30 at the trailhead... And another one already on the route when we got there. Good thing for the early start too, because thunderstorms moved in unusually early. Easy descent back to the JMT from the pinnacle.
Over 13 hours round trip; 3 to 4 hours waiting on ledges for our turn in the que, but what do you expect on a holiday weekend? Otherwise this is a "must do" classic.
Did 5.7 variation. Fun climb with great company.
Swapped leads both times. Did the 5.7 variations to the right and to the left of the chimney. Still haven't done the chimney :)
Each time I've had to deal with multiple parties at belays, crossed ropes, etc. Fun, great scenery, not too hard .. that's why everyone else is there too !
Gorgeous day. Got an early start and climbed in 2 groups - Dave and Mustafa on 1 rope, Jillian and myself on the other.
did it with Chris Plewa during the summer of dirtbagging. also went to Eichorn.
ME GUSTA CATHEDRAL!!!! AYYEEEEE
Quick trip to Tuolumne on the GS to solo Cathedral. Beautiful weather and relatively quiet for a Sunday.
Despite the winds and occasional snow/hail flurries, the weather stayed just good enough for us to finish the climb. Fun route! The chimney was quite the pain in the butt with a pack on, though, but good practice leading offwidth as well!
A very fun climb with my buddy Bruce. One day from Sac and back

Beautiful peak, great rock, good weather, great friends, what an awesome day.
Climbed this back in the late 80s/early 90s with Bob Beach. Soloed all but the last pitch, which is a great finish. Need to go back and do Eichorn.
Climbed the variation left of chimney, quite nice.
awesome alpine rock climb, easy to protect, beautiful scenery, and bomber holds...what more can you ask for, seriously? Plentiful variations as well.
Done this three times, amazing solo route.
Some solo climber cleaned our route and run away with the gear. Otherwise very nice climb.
Tenaya-Cathedral dayhike linkup. Very fun day. Lots of crowds, so we went around left to avoid the backed-up chimney.
Climbed with Peter on nippy but beautiful Fall day. Nice half day route.
