Devil in Disguise 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Nursing Home
Although short, this climb has good moves on steep rock. Follow laybacks past 3 bolts to the anchors. The crux is at the 3rd bolt. Climb this first and then lower to the ledge at the start of Angel of Mercy and do that climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

This cliff reminds me of Inca Stone (AKA: Truth Or Consequences) it is pretty short for the most part, though a few are taller than others. The rock is mostly solid, but the climbing feels discontinuous. Though it is not a destination crag, it is a reasonable place to get some mileage, 30-50 feet at a time. It was far enough up the canyon so as to be dry on Tuesday night when it was raining in the lower sections and in Boulder.
