BETA PHOTO: Idle Hands is the Devil's favorite route.


A stunner of a line that, surprisingly, went all on gear! Scramble up to a ledge to belay from. Step left off ledge to start in first crack, then follow weaknesses from there. Crux comes near the end as the crack pinches, but don't fret, decent holds and gear keep appearing. Bottom half is a little dirty with lichen while the top is clean. Takes nuts really well.


East face of Yellow Devil. Obvious line. NSR, 60m rope min.


Nuts, RPs, Single rack to #2
