Access Issue: Rebolting Complete! Details


This line follows the left side of the Angel and surmounts the right side of the arching roof. It starts about 6’ to the right of Northwest Passage. Thin climbing on slippery dark rock leads to the crux – pulling the roof. Although there is a bolt just below the roof, many a lead climber has taken a nasty fall from the crux. Be sure to wear your helmet on this one! Once above the roof, easy slab climbing leads past one more bolt to the anchor at the start of Let it Bleed. From here you can rap (a 60m is just long enough) or continue up Let it Bleed or one of the Flakes. Due to the slippery nature of the black rock, many teams choose to start up Northwest Passage and traverse up and right below the roof to gain the crux.


4 bolts, bolted anchor.
