Up to 15 pitches of various types of climbing from crack to slab to steep face, the Angel's Crest is a FULL days outing for the average climber. Incredible exposure on the Acrophobes & final .10a hand crack make this the most enjoyable moderate climb up the Chief

5 out of 5 stars Hung....

Did it super hungover...brought a couple brews up to keep the buzz going. Did a nice 10+ finish instead of the 5.8 finish which was really nice!

4 out of 5 stars Get There Early

P3 (5.10a Angel Crack) was my favourite pitch. P8 (5.10a) had some awkward moves that I nearly fell off of. P10 (Acrophobes Traverse) were quite exposed...obviously. P13 (5.10a steep crack) is the toughest pitch, IMHO - exposed with a difficult start while exhausted. P14 (5.8 Chimney) was quite exposed, stepping across an abyss.

5 out of 5 stars Unbelieveably Awesome!

Absolutely stunning! Glorious rock.
The second to last pitch is unreal, and the Acrophobes will blow your mind! Just go... go climb this route!

Took us 10 hrs. We doddled a bit.

5 out of 5 stars WOW!

Incredible is all I can say. Pretty much the most fun I've ever had climbing. The 5.10 pitches are beautiful, and the exposure is sometimes stunning.
