Went up cathedral while everything was wet, very challenging trail and slippery, the smaller lose rocks at the top coming back down to saddle get lose and can twist ankles easily, be careful on that part! 25-40mph winds at the top with about 40 yards of visibility... but it was amazing!!!

Summited Baxter Peak via chimney pond and saddle trails. High winds once we got up to the table lands. Did not make it across knifes edge. Will have to attempt another time. Beautiful views !

Came down Saddle after going up Cathedral. The smaller, loose granite at the top was difficult to navigate at times but the views were amazing and the climb down was steady.
