On the upper tier of the rock is a severly overhanging west face. Angel of Mercy climbs that face.
Four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

To get to the belay, approach up a gully on the right side of the the main rock and traverse carefully across slabs to the base of the climb. This is easy if no snow on the slabs. A few cams will make the belay more comfortable.
The view from the horn halfway up is worth it!

Great route, great moves! Definitely worth the slab scramble. Thanks for putting these up!

Great moves, but you clip one bolt before starting, then 2 more and then the anchors... the bolts are 5' apart. So the meat of the climbing is 10-15 feet. Great fun, but over quickly. If it were not for the deadly landing (sloper ledge to a 60' drop), it would be a boulder problem. As is, it's better off, but wish it was longer.

There is a huge jug in the center. When you grab it, your feet will be dangling in space.

If you are comfortable on class 3/4, you can quickly approach this climb from the left as well - 5-10 feet of climbing is all it takes.
On another note - there is a huge pile of crap right under the first bolt. We really couldn't think of a large enough animal that would be also agile enough to get to that spot. Even weirder is that the same pile is clearly visible on the pictures posted here on MP dated back to 2007. WTF?
