Outside of the cathedral on the lower trail leading Mountain Lion's Perch, Bird of Prey, etc. The climb starts with three bolts of loose rock, though there are solid enough holds to be found. At a good pod rest, the rock quality improves dramatically and the fun climbing begins. The route's 11b crux immediately follows the rest and then turns to easier climbing till just before the anchors. One final tough section (10+) protects the last ten feet to the anchor. ... It appears a once cemented on hold in the lower crux is no longer there (or was removed), making this route a solid 11b (Guide book lists 11a/b).

4 out of 5 stars Worth Climbing

After a moderate start on some loose rock, cool moves on solid rock lead to the anchor. Nice long route with a fun crux reach in the middle.
