With Matt K. from Houston. Did Earth Angel the day before and left our packs here for return the next day, good way to do these two. Well traveled, would solo the entire route except for the final short summit pitch. The last short pitch not near as exciting or worrisome as Moab summit blocks, but one 5.9 mantel required past a bolt. Think it took us 1 hour once we were roped up! Does well in early morning shade in October.
