Braving the Crowds
Friday June 21, 2013 5:55pm
Braving the crowds of Cathedral peak on a June Saturday. I don't know if we are nuts or just weekend warriors that won't let anything stop us. This is not recommended, find a weekday to get on this route.

The only civilized way to climb this peak anymore is to show up at dawn and solo it. Even the marmots have lost their manners.
