After a *separate* trip to Mt. Kimball + The Window + Window Peak, Cathedral Rock was considered a must do. This hike really was an adventure. The only other trip up Esperero Trail was about two months prior. We encountered heavy snow and knew we would have to return later.

The last half mile of this trip had a bit of snow. The entire area after the Cathedral Rock Trail turn off is just incredible. Seems like things move at a different pace up there. Very remote feeling.

The rope was still in good condition. The climb up wasn't bad, but I can see some being weary about attempting this last section. I used the rope to get up and down.

This is one of the bigger day hikes I have done so far. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
