Description:

Classic line with several variations, ascends an offwidth dihedral in a large corner not clearly visible until hiking uphill between Middle Cathedral and Higher Cathedral Spire. After attaining a large belay ledge (4th pitch?), the final 2 pitches offer visibility to and from much of the entire valley. Possible without hanging belays using one 60m rope. Can skip optional belays and link it w 6 long pitches.

Descent Options:

walk-off possible, my descent required two 20' downclimbs. happy bushwhackin !
