DescriptionInteresting slab climbing with interesting flakes and overlaps.
Most routes are top-roped, but some have been led.
Top-Roping: Setting up top anchor for top anchor works best with a static line, and with placing the anchor well down below the top of the cliff.
To set up a top anchor, traverse right (East) under the steep loose gully and under the base of the Jumble Hotel crag, almost to the base of the Puzzle Palace crag. Scramble up the steep left-trending gully (careful of loose sections) on the left side of Puzzle Palace, then horizontal Left (SouthWest) along the top of the cliff.
warning: The rock on and around this cliff has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
Getting ThereDevonshire is about 170 feet ENE from Tower Wall, or about 130 feet WSW from Puzzle Palace.
Between Shadow Castle wall and Jumble Hotel crag.
Because of difficult vegetation as of 2017, the easiest method of approach is to first go to the base of Puzzle Palace cliff, then walk about 130 feet WSW to the base of Devonshire.
How to get to Puzzle Palace: See the detailed instructions on the Perched Ramparts area page.
