Ascent Trip Report

On Sunday, June 26, three other Mountaineers and I climbed Cathedral Rock. It was a perfect day: almost no clouds, a slight breeze that kept the bugs away, a few spots with cooling snow, and dry rock to climb on. There was a lot of loose rock, though, and I was at times kicking rocks down. We managed the rock fall risk by either scrambling really close together, so that a rock wouldn’t have time to pick up speed before it hit someone, or going one at a time.

From the summit, we could see the neighboring Mount Daniel, but also Mount Rainier, Mount Shuksan, and Glacier Peak (along with tons of other peaks).
