Devil’s Castle redux, with some of the coolest alpine climbing I’ve done.
Being super psyched about Devil’s Castle after doing Black Streak with Thomas, I suggested to Crisco that we go do a route on the face, namely Horns of Satan (III 5.10b/c, 8 pitches, 800′). I’ll just say that the route was fantastic. The third pitch was one of the best pitches I’ve climbed in a while. I think I liked the route as much as Black Streak, maybe a even a little more. The cruxes on Horns of Satan were a bit more sustained and a bit more difficult. Again, it was a beautiful day on a great route. I’ll probably head up there again (for a third time) before the week’s over… On to the pics (as always, click for larger versions):
