Devils Tower, The Sabre. Tex Bossier and I made this new route on the west face in six hours of difficult climbing. It lies between the McCarthy and Vulture routes. It follows a thin aid crack for 300 feet, with belays in slings, passes a roof on the left and climbs left for 20 feet to another crack system. From here we climbed a diagonal chimney system to the summit. NCCS III, F6, A2.
