"Kevin and I climbed Cathedral Peak with another father/son team. We had 3 ropes and had a long day due to the number of climbers on the peak. 5.6 route and I had some trouble in the chute. I had to drop my pack and then pull it up once I ascended it. I was also pulling a rope up behind me for the 4th climber. We got off the peak late and had to use headlamps to get back to the car.
