The Devil's Wings are listed in 2 sections due to the nature of the crags. Being up at the summit of the Front Range foothills, this large set of Flatirons sets up a summit ridge of Bear Peak, having the namesake sweeping slabs facing Boulder to the east, and to the West, a steep if not overhanging or roofed out wall containing Shadow Canyon and looking westward to yellow aspens and snowy mountains, over the distant walls of Eldorado Canyon, The Veil and Sobo.
Access is for Sunset Wall, but slightly further south, either approaching as for Sunset, but keeping South and going around the end to that and to the West Face of the Wing, or approaching as for the Devil's Horns and continuing Northward along the cliff base to reach the towering bulges of this wall.

Climb these to near a summit at about 100' ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
