Description Suggest change

A spunky little rig which climbs a steep curtain on the left and mossy cobbles on the right.

Start out most likely on cobbles for the feet while getting some ice sticks in the steeper curtain on the left.  Clip a couple of bolts.  Transition over onto the ice finish.  Bolted anchor on the top right.

Get a good look at the upper part of the route prior to committing past the last fixed pro bolt.  The top out sees some sun so the ice may be dubious or worse.  A fall back into the lower angle gully from any distance past the last bolt might be a huge bummer.

Rappel off.

Location Suggest change

A short distance past Halo on the right.  In good conditions, Halo can be topped out to an upper anchor which could be used to reach the gully where Fallen Angel exists.

Scramble up the gully to the climb.

Protection Suggest change

A couple quick draws for the bolts and a selection of ice gear to include stubbies.
