Charleston Peak from Cathedral Rock

Charleston Peak from Cathedral Rock | Mt Charleston Wilderness | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Behind Cathedral Rock there are two very inconspicuous routes that go straight up the side of the South Ridge of Kyle Canyon. They are actually washes that I understand have been used by climbers to ascend Charleston Peak during the Winter months when the South Climb Trailhead and parking lot has been closed and blocked off and the upper elevations are snowed in. One of the most beautiful year-round springs in the Spring Mountains flows through this route in the area above Cathedral Rock. The route to the top of the South ridge of Kyle Canyon may take up to 4 hours from the Cathedral Rock Trailhead.
