Since this is a newly developed crag, I had to use Mountain Project, "the Devil's Head" digital guide on the Rakkup app, and Google Earth to find it. We parked in the pullout campsite on Jackson Creek Rd. and found the faint trail directly across the street in a break in the barbed wire fence. Though the trail is pretty well defined for the most part, there are definitely a few spots where it's easy to lose the trail. The digital guide includes a GPS and compass which helped us avoid unnecessary bushwhacking. The approach is kinda steep, especially with gear, but this is a great crag! Nov 5, 2016
