The Red Devil is the large Flatiron North of Der Zerkle. Like Der Zerkle, its East face is crossed horizontally by a substantial overhang. Above the overhang and close to the center of the face, a Chimney/trough starts and ends just before reaching the ledge for the final summit block. The Red Devil East face is, well, RED. And can be easily spotted from the Mesa trail.
To reach the bottom of the East Face, follow the Mallory cave trail to Square Rock and start bushwacking to the North West from here. When you reach the red Devil you will notice the Unicorn, a small Flatiron leaning against the North side of the East face of Red Devil. The Unicorn will block you from going too far to the North.

This is a great route although it is not very protectable. To quote Gerry Roach, "protection may seem lacking when it is wanted the most". I would give it a VS, but both Roach and Rossiter gave it an S, and who am I to argue with them....If interested in doing the route without the death risk, you can climb the South Face route, rappel to the bottom of the chimney above the overhang and top rope the first two pitches from there (60 meter rope)....The rock is great, the moves are interesting and ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
