The Devil's Own Stone is an great route on great stone that involves a good deal of stamina. Begin on some solid feeling, kitty litter type rock to the first bolt. I would recommend stick clipping the first bolt or climb slightly better rock on Devil Dog to the left, reaching over, clipping, then trending right to the second bolt and the goodness.

A word of advice: be careful when leading this if there is another party on Devil Dog, they share or come close to sharing some holds around the fifth bolt.


It is the fourth bolted line from the right.


11 bolts plus anchors.

This is an amazing climb. Follow perfect crimps, sidepulls, and nubs on great rock. The fight is not over till you reach the anchors.

Several cruxes with great sustained movement. I've heard that some holds have blown in the crux sequence. I have no problem calling this 12a. Get on this climb!
