Description

Start up an easy slab to reach a short, wide crack. At the top of this, step right to reach a pair of cracks that give easy hand-jamming then layaways.

It is given 5.8 in Stewart Green's guidebook, but it is more like 5.6 (UK grade HS 4a). This is a really nice easy climb, though a bit crusty with lichen in places at present.

Location

On the left side of the cliff (about 60 yards right of the central area with big "bathtub" features), there are two pine trees about 100' above the ground on a big ledge. Angel Wings climbs directly up cracks that run down from the left side of those trees.

Protection

Lots of placements for cams and nuts. Belay off blocks at the back of the ledge. Descend by rapping 110' off bolts at the top of Seraphim (located 25' to the right, facing in, along the big ledge).
