Description

Bold 5.10- moves get you to an uncomfortably high first bolt (be careful!). Easier climbing leads to the base of an intimidating roof. Clip a well-placed bolt and crank over the huge roof on some signature Castle Rock "sloping jugs" (crux). Finish with 30 feet of easy slabbing, passing two bolt-protected 5.8/5.9 roofs (shared with "Chimps in Negligee").

Location

Pretty much in the center of the crag. About 40 feet left of "Go I Know Not Wither". Look for a large, bolt-protected roof 20-25 feet off the ground. This is bolt two of "Charlie's Angel".

Protection

5 bolts to a two-bolt anchor

Walk around to the top of the cliff (trail on the left side of the crag) to clean your anchor draws.

Though it's rated harder, I thought this route, while rated 5.11b, was noticeably easier than "Live Monkey Brain" (5.11a). But it's hard to compare the two, as a "Live Monkey Brain" is much more sustained than the one-move wonder "Charlie's Angel". Apr 23, 2010

Not R rated, not even close. There is one 11- ish move at the second bolt, other than that mostly 5.8 climbing. Mar 5, 2018
