Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2014
Can't believe I waited so long to do this hike, but I was not disappointed. What a fun peak! Did a west to east traverse. Didn't stay directly on the ridge for the middle summit, but went around to the south & up the back side. Most of the scrambling much easier than it looks.

I'll be honest I was scared to death while doing this. I completed it and I would go back and do this again. It really isn't as bad as it looks.

I climbed this peak with Rocky Alps. We did the west and the middle summits. It involved some fun, but exposed scrambling. We did Sugarloaf afterwards. The Albion Basin was beautiful with lots of wildflowers.

Can be climbed or "hiked" though exposure even on the standard walk/traverse there is a ton of exposure. Great thrill, spectacular views, and easily combined with Sugarloaf and another unnamed peak. The approach if timed right is through wildflower meadows also, though a cool winter climb could be done up the central gully splitting the face of the mountain.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2014


9/10/2014 Traverse from East to West. From Catherine's Pass to Sunset and up and over Devil's Castle to Sugarloaf. Very fun, challenging traverse over Devil's Castle.
8/20/2012 Approached from the saddle between Sugarloaf and Devil's Castle. Traversed East across all three towers before returning to the saddle. Great scramble.
10/2/2013 Climbed from Albion Basin. From Devil's Castle I worked my way along the ridge to AF Twins. Returned the way I came to the saddle between Baldy and Sugarloaf and back to Cecret Lake.

Excellent route. It was rated 11a in our guidebook but it wasn't that hard.

madsjimFun!  Sucess!


Very fun! Despite the rock looking crumbly, it is very easy to climb and like many other large alpine climbs, you can usually find an easier route if you feel uncomfortable with the exposure.

thigbeeClimbed via 3 Technical Routes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2011


I climbed this 3 times via 3 routes in the summer of 2011. It's some of my favorite rock climbing in the Wasatch. Big, dark, adventurous... What's not to love?

Here are links to my TRs (with pics) on my blog:

Black Streak (5.10c, 6 pitches)
Horns of Satan (5.10c, 8 pitches)
Portable Darkness (5.9+, 6 pitches)

I'll definitely be back to climb the rest of the routes.

Very enjoyable and not as difficult as it might seem. Some parts of climbing required some concentration but were easy enough. It was good to meet BigNick and chat on top.
