Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb easily for 15' to the base of the wide, right-facing corner. Layback up this into an easier-angled crack. At the top of this, step right and up on to a slab. Clip a bolt (long stretch) then up to more cracks (some vegetation) - there is another bolt higher up to plug the gap between cams. At the top, move left for 10' along a ledge to finish easily right of the trees.

Location 

On the left side of the cliff, about 60 yards left of the central area with big "bathtub" features, are two large pine trees about 100' above the ground. Cherubim starts up the right-facing corner and follows discontinuous cracks that lead to the big ledge right of the two pine trees.

Protection 

Mainly medium to large cams (up to #4 Friend). Belay by moving right (facing in) along the big ledge to reach bolts at the top of Seraphim. Rappel 110' from these to the ground.
