My friend Mike and I hanging out and enjoying the view from the summit of Cathedral Peak(5.6). One of the fifty classics and for good reason! The summit block is so small you can hardly fit more than three people up there.

Leading the airy traverse on the 5th pitch of Lucky Streaks

Average Rating = 3.64/5 Leading the airy traverse on the 5th pitch of Lucky Streaks

Lucky Streaks(5.10d)! In my own personal opinion, this is one of the best climbs in Tuolumne. It's also very challenging for the grade. The only downside to it is now that there is a 'supertopo' available for the route there is even more crowds than there was already.
