A fun but slightly "frightening" five pitch climb (which could have been done in four). We took the first chimney pitch of Angel's Fright and then cut across to The Trough. Didn't like the huge loose flake or the exposed face. But for a first timer to multi-pitch climbing, this was a good route.

This being my first experience with multi-pitch climbing, I was a bit apprehensive at the thought of doing a five pitch climb. Usually I enjoy chimneys, but with a daypack with water, food, and hiking shoes...I found that chimneys were only fun if one could actually FIT in it. Overall, I enjoyed the climb. I've never been more scared, but then that's when the adrenaline kicks in. For the record, I thought the descent was more scary...
