Cathedral's hardest pitch? Northern Hospitality climbs up an elegant and brutal feature on the left side of the Airation Buttress.
Start with a V7ish dyno which leads to technical climbing and a crux "elevator sequence," up a cool shallow corner system that switches aspects a number of times. Plus, since it's Cathedral, there's a slightly runout slab to finish.
13c? Yeah right.
Fix a line on a big tree about 50 yards past the Big Flush and rap down, past Clean Sweep, to the ledge at the base of Airation Buttress. Belay from big cams and stick clip the first bolt. There should be a big branch in situ for a stick clip.
7 bolts. Big cams for the belay
me midway through the upper crux

Have you ever climbed Southern Hospitality at Poke-O-Moonshine in the Dacks? Can't help but think you have with a name like this. Way to go...I'll have to check it out this upcoming weekend while I'm there.
