Angel starts with the 10a finger crack. This crack created incredible controversy when first freed by Fred Beckey and rated at a Sandbag 5.7. After the initial crack, traverse left to a fun offwidth so secure that no pro is really necessary. You can rap from just above the wide crack, or continue on to the top on low 5th class climbing with less character than some of the other routes. Worth going to the top the first time.

As everyone else has said, short and sweet. We ran TR laps on it and skipped the good jams to practice rattly finger technique.
