“A very boulder-filled scramble, but a fantastic ridge run.”— Ryan Gibbs
This run is very strenuous, but easier than Cathedral Trail (Class II/II+). The trail starts off mellow in the trees, but quickly steepens. Above treeline, you travel along a boulder field following painted markers. Hands are often required to climb over boulders, but fall potential is relatively low.
