I-I can't. This warding is too strong.
Castiel talking about the Angel Blocking Sigil
in Beat the Devil

The Angel Blocking Sigil is a sigil that blocks angels from entering a certain area. It does not affect archangels.


In The Bad Place, Dean uses this sigil to keep a group of angels at bay.

In the episode Beat the Devil, Castiel is prevented from going further due to the sigils. The archangel Gabriel destroys the sigils so the group can continue on.
