Way up on pointy little devil

Check NPS for Closures


Begin by climbing up the north ramp to a bolt. Fun delicate climbing on the face and arete with well placed bolts. Excellent summit!


Scramble up the gully with the initial "sidewalk ledge". The Pointy Little Devil is the spire on the right side of the gully directly across from the cleft which brakes off to Abominable Snowman (down and right) or the Shakers (up and left).

This is a nice, long, route. It requires thoughtful moves at the 5.8 crux, but the bolts are well placed to protect the climbing. Nice pointy little summit, too.
