Elliot and Michael’s Excellent Adventure

Lots of great climbing at Cathedral Ledge right now. – Doug

My buddy Bayard was talking about how difficult it is to get out with good friends sometimes. Elliot Gaddy is a busy guy. I feel like I’ve done a good amount of drinking with Elliot this fall, and a lot of planning for upcoming trips, but I’ve only gone ice climbing with the lad once: a failed attempt on Cannon, over before it began. We have been talking about doing a big day to train for Alaska for a little while. Cannon? Out of nick.
Cathedral, however, was in good shape, fifteen minutes away from our homes. While it doesn’t have the horrifying approach, objective hazard, loose rock, and high failure rate of Cannon, it does have solid gear, good ice, and sunny, short approaches. I guess it’s good to spoil oneself every now and then. – Michael Wejchert
