    Climbed via the Black Streak. This route was originally rated 5.11a but has been appropriately down graded to 5.10. I have also climbed Devil's Castle as a day hike. Offers some of the best view in the area.

    We delayed a trip to Colorado due to weather, so our consolation was climbing this couloir and one on the Pfeifferhorn the day before. This one was a good, fun, steep snow climb with a bit of rock scrambling thrown in.

    I've also done the standard scrambling route in the summer, which is a great, quick climb (can be done in under 2 hours roundtrip, definitely).

    Cool knife ridge. I think it is probably closer to 3rd/4th class in difficulty, but this hike has some exciting exposure.

    One of the couple peaks that I did in '05. Just started out hiking when I did this one and my love for scrambling kept growing.

    Did it again this year '08 but can't remember the exact date. Hiked it after work, to enjoy the sunset on the summit.

    Usually do it as a traverse, a few times summit only.

    Climbed with Matthew Van Horn, doing all three summits East to West. This is an excellent scramble, giving you the best the Wasatch has to offer. I think it is harder to go East to West, because the down climbing is much more difficult. (See trip report)

    Climbed with Ammon for a quick after work outing. Fun scramble for such a quick trip. We ended up coming down in the dark.

    Went up after work for a quick hike with Travis Atwood. The sun was setting when we started scrambling, but we made it back past the sketchy sections before dark. Great scrambling with plenty of exposure to go around. Ran into climbingchic during the scrambling.

    Climbed with Brenton Peterson on a fine, late-spring day; still a ton of snow hanging around this year.

    August 11, 2012. Climbed the six pitch "Portable Darkness Route" then scrambled to the peak.
    Start climbing at 12:04 pm. Here are our times (climbed with Scott C)...Both at top of p1 at 12:46 pm. Both at top of p2 at 1:41 pm, both at top of p3 at 1:57 pm, both at top of p4 at 2:34, both at top of p5 at 3:02, and both at top of p6 at 3:38 pm. 4:15 on the summit. 5:30 pm at Cecret lake, and 6:30 at the Alta parking lot.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    April 5, 2008 While skiing at Alta, I put on my climbling skins and skinned up to the East Peak of Devils Castle (aka East Castle); I got right up on top so I could look down the South aspect. It only took about 30 minutes to do it from the Supreme lift at Alta. First time I did it was March 22, 2008, but I didn't bother with the views like I did this time.

    East Castle is at 40.56603ºN / 111.61101ºW with an elevation of 10,880 ft.

    Also today (April 5, 2008), I skinned up to the ridge between Sugarloaf and Devils Castle, and had a look down the south aspect. I was at 40.56528ºN / 111.61824ºW, about 0.6 km E (82°) of East Castle at an elevation of 10,800 ft.

    Loved the views of Timp from both locations.

    Bagged this in a quick afternoon with J. Parked at Alta then ascended via Cecret Lake, gained the ridge east of the peak and made our way up the scramble (sketchtastic!) to the summit, where we were surprised and pleased to find a couple from Colorado already up there. Great exposure and an excellent peak, looking forward to a technical ascent up Black Streak this summer.

    Been wanting to climb Devil's Castle since last year. Scrambled up the boulder field to the colouir on the west side- only climbed to the first summit as I was just "exploring", but mean to come back soon and finish it off.

    7/28/07
    Camped out in the saddle meadow between Devil's Castle and Sugarloaf. Hiked up Sugarloaf to wake up and get warm, then came back and finished off Devil's Castle. Saw a huge moose on the way down- it was a good morning.

    Wow, this peak has excellent exposure but still a fairly easy climb. Solid rock with maybe one low 5th (~5.2) move. This turned out to be easier than I thought it was, but more fun as well. Saw a goat pretty close on the way down. Tacked on Sugarloaf before just for fun.

    My first time hitting all three towers, thanks to the able help of Lana & Broc. This is a fine little climb which makes the climber utilize a wide range of skills. The entire exercise took only 3 1/2 hours. I highly recommend this loop. (We crossed the ridgeline from west to east and descended after traversing eastward from the third tower maybe 300 yards.) #2 on 8-7-07 with Lana & Brent we topped them from west to east and then came back, touching each tower again and then followed the ridge to Haystack. Lots of fun scrambling. #3 8-29-07 My 3rd time atop all of the spires was part of a long ridge hike which began at the south Superior ridge and hooked around to the Snowbird tram. #4 10-19-10 W/ Dave. Alta Ridge Run from Cardiff Pass over Honeycomb Cliffs, etc. to and including the Castle. Astounding autumn colors below us and in LCC.

    The dirt road up to Cecret Lake was closed for "dust control" thus added another 5 miles to the hike.

    This was my first time in the Albion Basin and I loved it! The views and exposure would be really hard to beat in any other trip that takes less than three hours car-to-car. Threw in Sugarloaf on the way down since it was so close. Saw several moose, including a massive bull near the campground and a smaller cow on a plateau above the lake.
