A fun alternative route to the summit of the Cathedral, consisting of enjoyable laybacking and jamming. Follow The Tourist Route through the chasm until you reach the chipped steps. There is a very obvious flake line a couple of meters further along, on the right wall. A couple of #2 camelots are recommended for adequate protection. At the top of the flake, belay and then scramble to the right to rejoin the tourist route at the chipped steps in the corner. Follow this to the chains above Edge of Pleasure and abseil down to the Maharajah ledge.
