Devil's Rejects is a large ~250 foot tall buttress that towers over Jackson Creek Road just south-southwest of Sin City and the Recovery Wall. There is plenty of new sport potential for hard slab routes along with some quality trad routes.

This area falls into the seasonal falcon closure at Devil's Head and is closed from March 1 to July 31.

Note: there is already at least one established climb on this rock and if there is a different name for the crag, please let me know so I can change it.

Getting There 

Drive ~13 miles south of the Rampart Range Road – well past the turn for the Devil's Head lookout tower trail and camping area. After a set of sharp switchbacks, turn left onto Jackson Creek Road (FS 502) and drive ~1.5 miles to a primitive campsite on the left, just past a meadow. If you reach the turn for the closed Jackson Creek campground on the right, you have driven too far.

Start up the Recovery Wall trail (the one that climbs west out of the campsite), but before turning north to Recovery Wall, begin bushwhacking west-southwest towards the obvious buttress with a large roof. The approach takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

Nacimiento del Diablo starts up an easy offwidth crack on the right prow of Devil's Rejects. Although the climbing doesn't look that good, it has a surprisingly awesome finish which is much harder than it appears.Begin with some 5.7 climbing. Although you're climbing up a wide crack, there are plenty of features around the crack to avoid the OW battle.
