Devil's Horns Rock Climbing
This set of West-facing crags sits on the ridge of Bear Peak, between the West Face of the Devil's Wings
and the Devil's Thumb
. There are 3 prominent outcroppings here, the Northernmost having a few fins of rock reminiscent of Cadillac Crag, in Eldo, the next being less distinct, but broader, and then a third, a broken band just North of the Devil's Thumb
While each of these faces predominantly west, there are more Southern or Northern aspects to each, and varying amounts of exposure or shade by trees or rock.
The rock quality is mostly good, but lack of popular travel means more loose flakes than in a place that is well traveled. If you goal is to be alone for the day, this could be the place.
Approach as for Devil's Thumb
, but continue North up below the cliff line, keeping an eye out for some distinct lines, so of which have been climbed, others not.
Climbing Season For the South area.
Weather station 1.4 miles from here

A mellow outing on a high formation. Not many Flatirons crags ascend to this height, and as this one stands with a summit, it may afford one of the best views around.Climb up into the cleft between the two major 'horns' of rock, which are somewhat reminiscent of Cadillac Crag's features, in Eldo. Climb the acute dihedral and cracks on it's right-hand side to reach the cleft on the summit. To descend, down-climb the route (this could be done down-leading) or rig an anchor to descend....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

I did a couple slabby routes up the eastern aspects of these. Pretty interesting formations.
