Cathedral Rock TH


From Peggy's Pond, climb to 6,300' on the east ridge. Traverse below the Daniel Glacier at 6,100-6,300' to the vicinity of Lynch draw. Walk across frozen Pea Soup Lake and get on the ice above low rocks. Ascend glacier to the gap between the two highest summits (in late season, expect detour around the crevasses 2/3 of the way up). The W summit on the right of the notch is the highest. No credit is given for ascending either the SE Ridge or Hyas Creek Glacier to the upper Daniel Glacier from Peggy's Pond (both are scrambles). In early season, walk across frozen Pea Soup Lake to get on the Lynch Glacier. Later on, when Pea Soup Lake melts out, one can NOT walk around the lake due to cliffs and the receding Lynch Glacier.

This is a combination trip for an attempt of Cathedral Rock on Saturday, 6/29 and Mt. Daniel on 6/30 with a shared camp. You must be able to do both outings to go. A car camp at the Cathedral Rock TH is highly recommended on Friday night for an early start Saturday. Details to follow.
