Comments
Comments: Well could not have picked a better day out on the mountain. It was a beautiful day to be out with clear skies and barely any wind on the summer. Cathedral trail was a new trail for me and it was an amazing and very exposed trail. I clearly never read the description of how exposed it is and I don't think I would ever go up that in the winter. There were rock scrambled but nothing too hard to do with looking for the right foot and hand placement. We decided to change plans and head down saddle as Will was having some knee pain so we decided dudley would be for another day. I have not been on saddle since 2014 and wow do I remember it differently. Easiest way off the mountain I would say but still rock slide is rock slide and needed some brain attention to not fall. Great day in Baxter.
