He Devil Peak, East Ridge, Seven Devils Mountains. On July 24,I climbed He Devil Peak by following the crest of the east ridge from the He Devil-She Devil col to the summit of He Devil. Three short fourth-class chimneys were encountered, the last of which was blocked by an overhanging chockstone. My route is a delightful scramble and offers a much more enjoyable way of reaching the summit than the regular east-ridge route. The latter, as described in the guidebook, is little more than a talus trudge.
