This was a bold route for its time, and it still provides excitement. It starts fifty feet left of Angel’s Fright, at a tree. Pitch 1 has 5.10A moves near the top of the initial crack, and on the face above. Belay at the large ledge, or continue on much easier ground to a smaller stance at the top of some steep flakes. Start the crux pitch with some 5.9 face climbing past two bolts. A good stopper protects a 15 foot traverse to the right, along the lip of a small roof. Another solid stopper can be placed here, to protect the crux moves ten feet above. After you do the crux moves, a bolt protects a short 5.9 section to the belay. Traverse left and finish on The Trough.


light rack, with mostly small gear

The first pitch is great, although it doesn't seem to see much traffic. It makes for a nice alternative to Human Fright or Dave's Deviation, if those classic lines are swamped...

bring some small stuff.

P1 is a great 10a with a bolted anchor. P2 has great climbing but the bolts are SHIT! Looks like roofing nails pounded with home made aluminum hangers.

the first time doing this route, the lone bolt on the first pitch protecting the 10- move was also one of the crappy, nailed in aluminum hanger. I never understood why only that one bolt was upgraded.

Between Human Fright, Dave's Deviation and Devil's Delight you have 3 amazing warm-up pitches with rap anchors on the West Face with G protection, no need to wait for crowds!
