Around the left corner from Bagatelle, Beginner's Demise ascends the picturesque arete. Funky corner palming makes this route stand out among Devil's Lake crimp-fests. Beginner's Demise may be a good training route for the same kind of moves on Gill's Nose.

It was lead by Al Chekolinski back in the late 70's,never since to my knowledge. Tommy Duechler chipper his copper head on his ascent of bagatelle. I remove the Head in 87 when I lead bagatelle, it was or seemed like a good placement. Lately the hold seems a little hollow. Oct 24, 2006

Super good climb. Definitely a different feel then other DL routes. Nov 21, 2009
Saw another lead from a visiting SLC climber. He found a small wire around the corner halfway up for pro, but that was it! Oct 15, 2010
