yosemite | New Hard Yosemite Route on Higher Cathedral

“Shooting Lempe and Pringle while they put up a first ascent on Higher Cathedral Rock wasn’t Plan A. Or Plan B. Or even Plan C. But the boys were set on finding something adventurous, and the north face of HCR certainly delivered. I had the pleasure of tagging along as they forged their way up thin seams, bushy cracks, and wild roofs on this little bigwall on Friday and Saturday. Here Ethan delicately onsights his way through some dirty 5.11+ R, one of the coolest things I’ve witnessed in one of more spectacular locations I’ve ever seen in Yosemite.” -Photo and words by Austin Siadak
