Description

Angel's Way is the third major ridge rising out of Skunk Canyon to the north. Its east face is much smaller than the east faces of Stairway to Heaven and Satan's Slab, but the ridge is about the same overall length.

Because of its small size, there aren't really any routes on the east face of this rock. There is a wonderful 5.0-5.2 scrambling route that ascends the entire ridge. This ridge is one of the best scrambles in the Flatirons. The quality and setting of this rock are sublime.

Getting There

Follow the directions to the west face routes on Satan's Slab, but instead of hiking up under that face, continue west up the hill to the base of Angel's Way. Unlike Satan's Slab and Stairway to Heaven, which rise right out of the creek, the base of this rock is significantly north up the hill from the Skunk Canyon creek.
