I like Angels Way, but I wouldn't recommend it as a first multi-pitch route. The approach is a bit of a thrash, but not really too bad, the descent is worse. Lots of poison ivy right now. I don't really think this route stacks up with the Flatiron classics, but you are pretty likely to have the route to yourselves.

Another option hidden in plain sight is Dodge Block on the Second. Easy access on one of the main east faces and I've never seen another party on the route. It is within sight of Freeway, which is much more popular, but I like the Dodge Block as much as Freeway. the route description on MP is solid and you step off the top of the route onto a trail for the descent.

All the easy east face routes have lots of 50 foot plus run outs, but as others have said, the low angle keeps it from being too intimidating.

Had enough advice yet? ;-)

Just as a bit more I was up in Gregory Canyon the other night and while it's notorious for it's ivy, there was more than ever. Bushes all over. All the rain the past 2 years have really turned the flats into a scratch fest.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the bears in there feeding soon either. I don't recall ever seeing so many apples, plums and general berries.
