Description

Faith in the Stone pilgrimages up a swath of great stone on a path to enlightenment.

Start in the huge corner system where the buttress meets the wall.

P1 | 5.10 | Mandatory Sedona hand crack flare squirm on immaculately conceived rock.  Exit right to e-z ledges and a bolt. Keep questing right to a test of faith mantle and a belay ledge that can host your whole family.

P2 | 5.11- | Step right multiple times to the bolt line. Clip em and pray your way up the slabby patina. Belay kinda sucks, keep going if you are feeling the holy spirit with you.

P3 | 5.11 | Pull up on great stone past a bolt into the classic bouldery pods system until the great ledge.  Holy moly!

P4 | 5.10+ | Climb up into the intimidating flare on gracious crimps and pockets. Mantle into the good book and follow the word to a bolt. Tip left with commitment to a blasphemous jug.  Climb up past another bolt and easier terrain to a rap anchor just belay flat terrain.

BONUS PITCH!!!! | If you seek a spiritual experience, climb up to the saddle and walk South to a divine voyage.   Down climb back to the last anchor with a belay!!! Rap route.

Makes for a nice up and over linkup with Directions from a Moroni

Location

Start just left of Ambulance Ride. Hike up Mormon canyon 45 min or so until you get to the earth angel approach trail. Continue up the main wash 5 min to a small side drainage on the right. Go up this until you encounter some ancient fixed rope in a chimney. Climb this and continue up to slickrock slabs. This leads to the saddle of Misguided Angel. Hike right to the far side of the bowl and the base of the enormo corner.
