BETA PHOTO: Topping out Walpurgisnacht


A couple of hard pulls and some back step smearing bring you through the crux to a awesome roof sequence on jugs. The "High E" of Devils Lake.

This can also be done as 5.8 by passing the first overhang on the right face and then traversing back left under the second overhang.


Start on Bucket Brigade in "The Funnel". Head left at the split towards a low-angle slab and a little tree. Climb straight up the hanging corners above.


Trad/TR, gear is questionable under the first roof.
