A short, but heart-rate raising scramble to a viewpoint in the middle of Cathedral Rock.

Overview

Description

This trail is fairly straightforward to find - just follow the cairns weaving up the path towards the Cathedral prominence and try not to get side-tracked by the Templeton Trail crossing after scrambling out of the river bed.

Expect mostly exposed rock faces at the start, leading to a few threads of shady dirt trail sections towards the top. There are some sections that are YDS 2, requiring a scramble up loose rocks. There is one boulder at the mid-point which is YDS 3 being particularly steep and exposed but fairly easy to get up if you have good shoes/feet and use your hands.

At the top, enjoy one heck of a view and follow a couple of short side trails for additional treats.

This is a desert trail! Mind the sun and bring enough water
