I would not immediately start searching for and climbing this supposed 'new route'. There could still be 'construction' going on on that particular route like chucking rocks off and etc. I think that I would wait until it is published and finished, just in case the DH crew isn't quite done with trundling.

Iggy, when you circumnavigate DH by the various roads around it, you can definitely discern what is part of the actual mountain that is DH and what isn't. The big stone is not near the tower area at all. Jun 4, 2014
This thread is thriving on the ambiguity of the name 'Devil's Head' and the way the info is organized in this database. The route Tony refers to would probably be considered part of Jackson Creek, but there is no established dividing line between JC and DH as it is commonly known (the environs of the fire tower). The fact one rock is named DH down by the old JC campground confuses things even more. The only way to do a 6 pitch route near the fire tower would be to install anchors less than 10m apart. Anything below the Shaft (and the ground drops steeply down past there) would probably be in Jackson Creek.

Richard's overview for JC makes this point as well
