Mount Angeles has several summits, of which the westernmost is the highest. This is a craggy peak with many routes to the top, but none of them is a walk-up. Moreover the rock is seriously loose in the big gullies. The easiest paths are scrambles, but only if you are a competent route finder through difficult terrain.
