March of Ides Cathedral
« on: August 21, 2018, 10:11:33 pm »
March of Ides.  FA Chris Gill 1981?
As per Eds book:  Alternate finish of the prow.  5.8.   From the start of the final crack step right 15 ft the the arete.  At the arete move straight up (pin) to a stance below a beautiful crack.  Climb the crack (5.8 ) and finish up Comeaus Finish.
Alternatively it also possible to rap in from the top.  Beautiful crack and amazing exposure for the grade.  It is still a bit dirty, but is climbable.  If you're looking for something different to try after topping out, give it a go!  It can only get better!
