Description

A great track from the Collide album, 'Chasing The Ghost.'

Start up a shallow, left-facing corner by stepping up and placing great medium stopper or cam, and an equally great fingerlock, then pull into the corner. Within a meter, the system is given to stiff laybacks with high feet and sections of jamming. After perhaps 60', the corner which has been hitherto characterized by laybacks is replaced by a system of equally well-protected flakes and cracks. Climb these to near a summit at about 100' up, then place a good directional and traverse hard right along flakes and ledges to reach the rap tree as for 'Wind Beneath The Devil's Wings' and belay/rap.
This is the best single pitch route on the West Face of the Devil's Wings.

Location

Toward the upper end of the West Face (north), a shallow and distinctly yellow, right-facing corner starts at the ground with a slight overhang and a large hollow flake on the left side. This is perhaps 100' to 150' North of 'Wind Beneath The Devil's Wings'.

Protection

Gear from medium stoppers to 3" cams. While a 4" piece can be placed, but just a bit deeper in the same place, other gear can be had. So forgo the heavy stuff.
