This is the creatively named 200 foot, west-facing granite slab which is the focal point of the area. Almost all of the routes here are easy to moderate slabs with the odd crack thrown in for variety. Despite the easier ratings the climbs here tend to have an "old school" feel to them and may seem run-out to those unaccustomed to such routes - caveat emptor.
Park in the fee parking area and hike in along a paved service road to reach the obvious west-facing "big rock". Plan on a 10-15 minute approach from the parking area.

This line follows the left side of the Angel and surmounts the right side of the arching roof. It starts about 6’ to the right of Northwest Passage. Thin climbing on slippery dark rock leads to the crux – pulling the roof. Although there is a bolt just below the roof, many a lead climber has taken a nasty fall from the crux. Be sure to wear your helmet on this one! Once above the roof, easy slab climbing leads past one more bolt to the anchor at the start of Let it Bleed.
