General Information:
          Angel Cove and Angel Cove - South Fork are both technical canyoneering routes that requires complete technical gear. Both Angel Cove and Angel Cove - South Fork are rated 3A II using the Canyon Rating System. A GPS is useful. Good map reading skills are essential.

          There are no bolted anchors in this canyon, let's preserve this feature. Many canyoneers before you have descended this canyon without placing bolts, so please play fair. You might need to locate and construct natural anchors, which should be considered part of the game. Instead of placing bolts might I suggest teamwork and partner assisted techniques. The problem solving involved with using natural anchor and teamwork is considered to be a major part of the adventure with this route.
