Climbing Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / Slow Transit (5.6)
Directions:  Starts from the bong belay on the first pitch of Thin Air.
Description: An interesting way to get around the crux pitch on Rapid Transit.
    Pitch 1: From the belay head up to the bolt on 007 then head left and up to the obvious ledge. Clip the peg on the right end of the ledge for Rapid Transit. It is possible to get one piece of gear before the peg. Traverse left on the ledge until below a dike running up to the Rapid Transit belay. If you keep to the dike it is definitely runout above the ledge. It is possible to go left of the dike to get gear, but be ready for the rope drag.

Gear: standard rack, double ropes help
Descent: rappel from the anchor or continue as desired
History:  unknown
