My gal and I will be in az next weekend and where wondering if we could get up earth angel without being thoroughly cooked if we got at it in good alpine fashion, are we just dreaming, or is that possible?
I would assume you would be alright. From what I remember, I think you would be in the shade the whole climb until you rap off. I think the raps had a southwest facing direction. Just bring plenty of cold beers for the hot walk back. I would definitely start early
Definitely positive, approach is long, but mostly stream bed walking. Probably will get off course at least once, but is pretty straight forward. Lots of poison ivy at base of last rap and last uphill push of the approach. But, that said definitely doable now, will be awesome! other option on the other side of the tower is touched by an angel, spectacular as well, but a fair bit harder. Good luck.
