Climbing Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / Standard Route (5.6 R)
Directions:  Start at the right-facing ramp/flake left of the obvious chimney.
Description: The chimney is the obvious vertical line on the Thin Air section of the cliff. First climbed in 1931, it still holds your attention - on the step-across on pitch 1 as well as the cave wall pitch!
    Pitch 1: Climb the normal right-angling ramp start to the base of Turner's Flake. Step down and traverse right to the small ledge at the start of Toe Crack. (5.5)

    Pitch 2: Climb up the chimney, past the chockstone to a belay in the cave. (5.5)

    Pitch 3: Climb the right-hand wall of the cave (5.6R crux) until you can clip a sling. Continue up on easier ground to a tree in the chimney.

    Pitch 4: Follow the gully to the ledge at the top. (5.5)

Gear: standard rack
Descent: walk off right or finish on Pine Tree Eliminate
History:  June 1931 - Leland Pollock, Payson Newton, Robert Underhill
