Devils Tower. On June 7 Dave Ingalls and I climbed a new route, “Exit-Us,” on the Devils Tower. It has the same start as for the “Cave.” Pitch 1: Climb up crack and proceed diagonally right to a belay stance. Pitch 2: Climb crack above and nail 60 feet to a sling belay. Pitch 3: Nail 80 feet to a small horizontal bulge. Tension traverse to another sling belay. Pitch 4: Follow crack above to the meadows. (This is the same top pitch as the “Cave.” II, F6, A3.
