Rock Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / The Culprits (5.9+)
Directions:  Start on the original Refuse start, right of Funhouse.
Description: A different and interesting way to get up to the middle tree ledge. If you don't want to do the first pitch of Refuse you can always walk around to the tree stump on the ledge.
    Pitch 1: Climb the original, mostly unused, first pitch corner of Refuse.

    Pitch 2: Find the stump of the Refuse tree. Make a traverse left across a face underneath an overhang/roof to the Travesty belay. (5.9+)

    Pitch 3: Layback the flakes on the second pitch of Travesty to the tree ledge. (5.8)

Gear: standard rack
Descent: Continue to the top as desired or rappel with 2 ropes form the ledge.
