Rock Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / Camber (5.11b)
Directions:  Climb any route to the 2-bolt belay at the end of the Saigons.
Description: Certainly a classic. Great climbing, or superb rock in a spectacular location. It doesn't get much better.
    Pitch 1: Clamber up and left to the Tourist Treat crack and climb the crack past 2 bolts, or climb straight up on good horizontals from the Saigon belay. If you do the latter you will make a 40' unprotected traverse left from the first bolt to a bolt on Tourist Treat. Double ropes are essential in this case to prevent drag and protect the second! Continue up and slightly right to the crux roof. (5.11b) Pull the roof to a hanging belay at a 2-bolt anchor. 90'

    Pitch 2: Climb the face right to a bolt, step down and then up and right to a ledge. There was a tree but it fell down in 1998. Look for a groove and climb straight up until you can escape right to the top. 90' 5.10d

Gear: standard rack
