  • Description 

    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.

    Getting There 

    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.

    Featured Route For Devil's Horns

    Cerebrus 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Flatirons : ... : Devil's Horns
    An initial crux (5.9) comes right off the ground while you are fresh. Grab the crack on the left and a high crimp on the right and pull up the feet into a scrunch on poor holds. Get established, place gear and relax; the rest of the climb is pretty mellow and well protected. Continue up cracks and flakes to the top of the buttress, and belay from gear or a tree.To descend, the FA party scrambled Northward on ledges and flakes back to the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

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