This route is a must do. It has continuous and various climbing that require some thinking. The first crux comes at the 5th bolt plus a delicate move coming out of the crack a few bolts higher.


This route is the 5th route (East Face) and easy to locate with the obvious dihedral.


12 bolts.

Awesome route, I could just be a pussy, but I think it's a little stout for the grade.

Does it help if my son led it last year when he was 10? There are some kind of inobvious moves, so it may seem tough if you miss the tricks.

Great route with consistently interesting climbing from the moment you leave the ground until you clip the chains. From the ground, it looks fairly easy, but there is some weird geometry up there.

Killer moves on bullet rock, certainly one of the best .11s at DH.

This route is awesome. Best one I've found yet at Devil's Head. Do it, but it ain't 11b; I'd say solid 11c.

I'm not in the greatest climbing shape at the moment, but this felt pretty hard for 11b. Very sustained. Maybe I wasn't reading some of moves right, but it felt tricky for sure.
