Cathedral Wall

(9 routes)

Impressive wall to the right of the prominent corner (Racing in the Streets). Some of the old school routes are committing, Lower half being ok but upper slabby section being runnout on slightly loose rock! The post-2008 routes require trad climbing to get to the bolted sections.
