Cathedral Peak

The Cathedral range, with its numerous free standing peaks and magnificent mountain scenery, is one of the most favoured parts of the Berg for backpacking and rock climbing. Bordered in the north and north-west by the Upper Tugela Location and in the south by the Mdedelelo Wilderness, the area is dominated by the spire like Cathedral Peak after which it is named.
