Are you still keeping this a secret? I recall meeting you last year talking about a ~6 pitch sport route in Devil's Head.

Great area, fun climbs, I guess it's still a secret area, as it's not on MP. I think they're waiting till a new guidebook comes out. There are no 6 pitch routes at this new area. There are some 2 pitch routes.

Yes there is. You just don't know where, yet.

So! this photo was not taken at, The Recover Wall, where I think it was, likely taken, then I'm wrong, I think I'm not, The Recover Wall has no 6 pitch routes, I don't doubt there are 6 pitch routes, some place at D H.

This route is not on the wall you think.... It is, in fact, the 1st pitch to a 6-7 pitch route (Mike added a 7th final pitch).

Cool. Nice to have some longer stuff coming in. How long are those pitches?
The wall that was traditionally called Devil's Head as of 30+ years ago is certainly long enough for 5-6 pitch stuff, and I've personally done some of it.
So there is such potential in the area:
i.e.: Dariush of Balanat.

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

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.

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.
