fun little crack


This is a short route with some fun moves. It is the first route on the cathedral's west face. It's also starts right off the main hiking trail. The start of the climb is probably the crux, climbing into the dihedral. Bring long slings to extend the chains at the top over the boulder if you are setting up a top rope.


a set of stoppers and a small cam or two. chains at the top for top roping

A tree has fallen into this route. It blocks the moves into the dihedral. Somebody bring the chain saw ; )
