Cathedral Peak

This beautiful and rugged peak is south of Aspen and just North of Castle Peak. It can be accessed from Castle Creek Road via the Cathedral Lake Trail. From the lake, head south west into a large and rocky bowl. Head up the very steep and loose couloir at the head of the bowl, and then up the ridge to the summit. It is very loose rock and the couloir will be full of snow early in the season.

    Make sure to bring crampons and an ice axe for this one... the couloir is exciting without those luxuries! Beautiful hike.
