Devil’s Peak, new routes. A popular spring climb, this peak lies at the headwaters of Coal Creek east of Silverton. In 1962 the North Face was climbed by Al Clairmont and Ray Pruiett via a large 100-foot chimney and steep moss-covered friable rock which is unsuitable for pitons. The 300-foot direct East Face was climbed in 1963 by Dick Nelson, Mike Killien, and Dallas Kloke. Five pitons were required for protection on the four leads of Class IV-V rock.
