1. Climb the sequence through the rotten flakes, passing one bolt to a small ledge.(optional belay here). Trot up to the roof. Crank it using a wonderful series of steep knobs and edges. Head straight up easy rock, passing one bolt to kill the major run out, to the headwall. Look right for the Angell Falls belay.5.8
2. Climb up a slightly left to a bolt. #3 Camalot goes in hole up and left. Climb past hard move and bolt to tree anchor on summit. 5.10.
towards the right end of the wall, left of the perpetual wet streak is a small roof band. Start below the series of flakes leading to a weakness at the mid-right side of the roof.
Gear to #2 Camalot. Mostly TCU's and/or small Camalots. some bolts

What a great route! Felt casual but definitely run out on the easy stuff. It is about 150 feet to the Angel Falls anchors.
