Rock Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / No Man's Land (5.6 R)
Directions:  Look for a small tree about 20' up between the Saigons and the start of Thin Air.
Description: Clean face climbing but minimal gear. Certainly not a climb for 5.6 leaders.
    Pitch 1: Face climb to the tree. Traverse right to the left-leaning dike and climb it to a horizontal crack. Belay here. (5.5R)

    Pitch 2: Follow the dike up past a flake (crux) to a 2-bolt anchor. (5.6R)

    Pitch 3: Few climbers do this pitch. Climb as desired up to the 2-bolt anchor at the Goofer's cave. (5.5)

Gear: standard rack with small wired nuts.
Descent: rappel with 2 ropes or finish as desired
History:  August 1970 - David Tibbits, Howard Peterson
Tod Swain named the route in 1980
