0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Reached via Boott Spur trail and down scrambling to mid height. Line ascends obvious weaknesses of the north facing section. Some loose. Tricky to keep a single strand off the edgy rocks, but doable without too much drag. There were some awkward runouts with ledgefall potential. The lines on the WNW face of The Cathedral look more exposed and interesting.
