We will meet at the Cathedral Rock Trail Head at 8am.  Earlier meet-ups can be discussed in email chain provided a week before the climb date.

This is a 2 day climb that will include Cathedral Rock as well as Mt Daniel.  The plan will be to establish camp early on the first day of the climb at Peggy's Pond.  The rest of the afternoon will be spent climbing Cathedral Rock right outside of camp.  On Sunday, we will navigate to Pea Soup Lake where we will start the climb up the Lynch Glacier to summit Mt Daniel.  We will scramble back to camp following the summit and pack up and head back to the cars.
