Description Suggest change

Strange Cargo is the first route on the left side of the base of Lost Angel - the start is often underwater in the spring and summer.

The first pitch climbs a dirty face section to a 3 foot roof (crux) and belays just above. ~50 feet.

The second pitch, which can be easily combined with the first, climbs up and trends rightwards to another 2 bolt station. Per Benjamn P: this climbs left and up.

The third pitch (the best on the route) heads up and right to a beautiful, exposed arete which goes at 5.9. No rap station is currently installed at the top of this pitch, necessitating a walk-off descent down the gully. [Eds. a 2 bolt anchor without chains has been added to the top of P3.]

Protection Suggest change

Fully bolted. Take 12 draws; more if you wish to combine the 1st and 2nd pitches (recommended).
