Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


 Just left of Archangel a crack system leads to a steep off-width crack about fifty feet up.  Climb this and belay a short distance above the off-width section.  The second pitch continues up the easier crack, staying left at a small triangular overhang.  At its top, step left to a good belay ledge.  The third pitch continues up the crack directly above.  A short rappel down and right leads to the Archangel descent.

The second pitch offers a few variations.  Probably the easiest is to continue up the crack for 30 feet, then move left onto pleasant varnished face climbing.  It is also possible to escape right and traverse to the top of Archangel.


This is the first crack system to the left of Archangel.
