North America, Canada, Rocky Mountains of Canada, Cathedral Pass

Cathedral Pass. As a better route, superseding the Dennis and Duchesnay route from Field to Lake O’Hara, Cathedral Pass (8800 ft.) crosses between Mt. Stephen and the Cathedral massif. It is reached on the railroad side by a 3-mile walk or ride to Cache Creek, the easy valley leading to steep snow and rock slopes of the pass. Very easy slopes lead down to Linda Valley. The pass was crossed in 1909 by T. E. Beveridge and A. A. McCoubrey, leaving the Cache Creek bridge at 1.30 P.M. and making a circuit of the Cathedral massif by evening.
