Satanic Verses climbs the white colored rock climber's left of Crack of Doom. The crux is in that white rock, as it is slick and quite polished on flaring not-so-fun jams.

Gear and one bolt.

Is this the same as Devil's Delight in Viktor's book? With Satanic Verses being next left?
I tried leading this , super hard and kinda scary at crux. May 27, 2014

It very well may be, but almost impossible to tell. I remember it being referred to as Satanic Verses by a longtime Castle Rock junkie, so just always believed it to be the route name. May 28, 2014

My 1976 Carlstad and Brooks guidebook has three routes in this area, L to R: Devil's Fright, Devil's Delight, and Crack of Doom. The given ratings of the 1st 2 were 5.10+, the last 5.8+. My notes from the time (~1980?) had the Delight at 10b, with the other ratings being about right. It sounds like this is the Delight, but perhaps has gotten slicker and harder. Feb 21, 2019
