Description

The Pentaverate, is an admittedly arbitrary and contrived collection of five of the best "ridges" Devil's Lake has to offer. Alliteration aside, this linkup is great tour of the park, good training for moving fast in the mountains, and a fun way to get whole-body workout in.

1. Pseudo Ridge (4 pitches)
2. B-minor Mass & Flotsam and Jetsam (2 pitches)
3. Balanced Rock Ridge (3-4 pitches)
4. Lumby Ridge (3 pitches)
5. Turk's Head Ridge (7-8 pitches)

The preferred style for The Pentaverate is to start at the CCC parking lot sign, hammer out the four ridges on the East Bluff, run the tracks to the north end of the Lake, grab an ice cream sandwich at the Chateau, bust the the Tumbled Rocks trail, do Turk's Head Ridge, then sprint back to the CCC lot via the West Bluff Trail and South Shore Road. The watch (if you're timing it) starts and stops at the info sign in the CCC lot by the iron ranger pay box.
