With two distinct cruxes and good climbing between them, Guardian Angel is a fun challenge. The route gets its name from an incident in which a climber took a ground fall from the top and escaped serious injury. NOTE: the first ascent was likely done on gear and later retrobolted, so feel free to break out your rack and skip the bolts if you're a trad leader.

Starting just left of a left-facing corner, climb the face on easy ground to a small roof. Pull the roof (crux) on good holds and continue up the face. A thin crimpy section near the finish provides a second technical crux.


Starts almost directly across from where the approach trail hits the cliffline, about 15' right of The Up Game.


Seven bolts, bolted anchors.
