Description 

Webster gives this route a star and says it has moves reminiscent of Ventilator. It is currently in need of extensive cleaning as it is under a inch of moss. Although harder, it looks better protected than its neighbor, Thresher. The newer bolts gleam invitingly in the moss.

The route heads up and left until under the lower anchor tree used for ice-climbing.

If you are curious about the name consider the first ascent party.

Location 

I guess is the last climb to the right on Cathedral. This is 15 feet to the right of Thresher, which the obvious cleaned climb up the center of the slab. The bolts are visible protruding from the moss.

To access the base, walk all the way to the right of Cathedral Ledge until you are underneath a very wet low angle slab. At the right edge of this there is short, dank broken section that allows you access onto the ramp above. Follow this ramp up and left until you under the base of thresher. You will likely regret wearing flip-flops for this part of the approach. Also, to descend it's much easier to just rap down from a tree at the base of the climbs.

To access the top walk up the steep trail that follows from the base of the ledge on the far far right. You can get to the tree with care anchors via a steep short bushwhack from the top.

Protection 

4 decent looking bolts. Rappel or belay from a tree at good stance at the top. Can be TR'd too.
