Watch a Send of Archangel 5.12 in Boulder Canyon

Curtis Beutler works on and sends the well-known Boulder Canyon test-piece Archangel 5.12c. The line has long been at the centre of debate about bolting ethics and trad verses sport.

What once was a dangerous and run-out, dirty route has now become an area classic after its retro-bolting. With similar and much easier moves than China Doll as well as its delicate granite smearing and laybacking, it’s a must do.
