Scramble to the belay platform that is located at the base of The Burning Cauldon and Devil's Vista. Locate the obvious, thin, parallel crack on the right wall, and climb the crack to a bush. Climb over the bush to a two bolt anchor.


BD C4 0.5-2, nuts, and maybe an extra 0.75.

Demon Semen, 5.8.
We thought it was just as hard as the Devils Duodenum, just fingery instead of hands.
I haven't been up there in a while, too bad to hear the bush grew back. Maybe some more gardening is in order.

We had 5 people climb, 3 lead, and all thought this was harder than Devil's Duodenum. As usual, all ratings are subjective.

5 people climbed it without trimming the bush? What about stewardship and route maintenance? ;^) JK.
It's been a while since I climbed it. Maybe I was stronger back then; I was drinking more. Regardless, it's good to hear I'm not the only one to enjoy these routes (most people leave their trad racks in the car at DH).
