[A***] Cathedral Rock

Cathedral Rock. Rating: A***. Pace: Moderate [144, 05:00 AM, $6]. The hike begins at the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center and follows the Esperero Trail to the Cathedral Rock Trail (26) and continues to the Cathedral Rock Saddle (el. 7006 feet). Hikers then bushwhack following intermittent cairns northwest to the Notch and then over to the Bucket of the south tower which is the most accessible of the three summit towers. ***The final 100' or so require climbing a rope which hangs from the NW side of the pinnacle. This is a long, difficult hike with several mantel crossings and fantastic views. The trail up is very steep, and the trip down will be difficult. Hike 18.1 miles; trailhead elevation 2720 feet; net elevation change 5370 feet; accumulated gain 6400 feet; RTD 56 miles. [Guide: Bill Bender wbender@uw.edu.]
