FATMAP difficulty grade
The Ardiden Angel is a super in-bounds route.
It is unique because the steepest and narrowest section is toward the bottom, below the "Angel Wings".
When there is not a lot of snow accumulation, the narrow point can have rocks.
It faces northwest and tends to keep good snow conditions.
