Stone City Mountain
The east face of this mountain offers a multi-pitch technical rock route. The summit can also be reached by hiking from the north along the popular Cathedral Rim trail.

The name refers to some amazing rock pinacles resembling giant, rounded hoodoos, which formed through erosion during the last ice age. The area of Cathedral Park was too dry to be covered in ice and many unusual features formed as a result.
