The Cathedral Explorer

Climbing to the summit of the Cathedral is probably harder than you think - but could also be the most rewarding and exciting thing you've ever done!

The Cathedral, Mount Buffalo at sunrise.

This trip is likely to be both more difficult and way more rewarding than you expect it to be. Over a few hours we’ll walk, squeeze through slots, scramble under, over and around boulders, climb some rope ladders and finally scramble right to the highest point on the Cathedral, high above the Mount Buffalo plateau. After taking in some amazing views that not many people get to appreciate we have a long but straightforward abseil right back to the ground.

This isn’t a rock climbing tour, or an abseiling tour, though it includes both at an achievable level. We'll be using ropes and harnesses to keep you safe. It is fairly challenging and a moderate level of fitness is needed. No previous climbing or abseiling experience is required, but you should be ready to get up high on top of some cliffs!
