Ascent Trip Report

From the saddle to Whiethorse ledge, we climbed the well used trail up to the summit of Cathedral Ledge. While not much of a view due to the clouds, it was impressive to be on top of the cliff and look down. After taking a few pictures, we got out the sleds and GoPros and decided to test the sledding quality of the Auto Road. The Results were spectacular.
