Description

The Dark Angel Buttress is the large steep and elaborate buttress, making up the southern contusion of The Devils Staircase. Some of the most pronounced and intimidating lines, including the classic 5 pitch Dark Angel can be found on this soreing buttress.

Getting There

Approach via Devils Slide Trail, head South from trail Junction until it becomes possible to dip down South Gulley decent of DAB or follow First Terrace approach. DAB base is found just right of the Arch Angel Amphitheater. Descend via the Devils slide trail or down narrow steep gully just south of buttress (South Gully) AKA (The Gallows). Similar to north gully descent At Tahquitz but quite a bit more involved!!! :)
