AceSierraWhat a cool looking rock!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2012


Looks so cool from a distance. Climbed SW ridge. I'm a scaredy-cat, but I think this is more like steep class 2 than "3-4". Views are quite fine from the top. Nice, small summit, makes it feel taller than it is.

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2013
Summit via SW Face - nice 1/2 day trip, should have started a bit earlier and combined with Snow Mtn. Fun scramble and enjoyed the traverse across the knife edge ridge. Trip Report http://mountainhiker.org/trip_report.aspx?id=80

mrchad9North Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2012


A nice half-day outing up the north chute... good conditions overall but for a bit of inconsistent in the upper part of the chute due to previous avalanches. None on my trip though. Descended the west face, which is more like class 2.

ckerthDevils Peak and Snow Mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2011


From Troy Road. Still several feet of snow above the train tracks, but it is melting quick. Followed the ridgeline between Devils Peak and Snow Mountain, first climbing Snow and then Devils on the way back. Some great views into the headwaters of the N F American, with many of the remote canyons having large waterfalls.

Hiked the peak from the north ridge with my girlfriend and my guitar, had a sweet jam session up top, then caught Long Lake on the way back to test out the zipline. Excellent hike!

Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2009


This peak is fun for all sorts of folks, providing a variety of routes from 3rd to 5th as indicated. We practiced climbing on some of the harder routes and did some rapelling. Rock is loose in many parts, but some of it is quite good. Plan to come back when there is more snow and climb the east face!

hvilhauerNorthwest Chute to Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2009
Amazing peak. You really feel like you are on top of the world! Took an informal trail that from the west side of Long Lake along a creek, past a small unmarked lake, to an unmarked logging road that runs across the north side of Devil's Peak. Logging road led to a trail up the north chute. Came back down the west side to meet the marked logging road. Down required some slipping and sliding and bushwhacking through the manzanita. Overall an amazing hike!

fedakRidge Traverse from Devils to Snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009


From the Cascade Lakes. Cross Country around the east side of Devils, backtracked to summit devils and then followed the ridge to Snow.

Rained for about a half hour between the two peaks.
Took the forest roads on the return trip.

Pics are here.

Mellow fun scramble with Kimberly, Pei, Cheryl, Bob, and Dave. The traverse along the ridge was especially pleasant.

SpiceManwhat a day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2007


This was a pretty cool mountain. It looks a lot taller at the base than it actually is. I was very happy to see a trail up the beginning part. The scrambling up was fairly easy but going down was annoying. David somehow thought down-climbing was fun.

After the summit, we:
-went to eat at the Summit Restauraunt, sat at the bar, and listened to people talk about smoking cigarrettes.
-took the dirt part of Soda Springs Road.
-rescued 13 runners from going the wrong way by putting them in the back of the pickup truck.
-made a quick stop at Duncan Peak and looked out the lookout.
-went to the Big Trees of Placer county (believe me those trees are big) and saw some Giant Sequioas.
-those trees really were big.
-drove about a billion miles per hour on the dirt road at the End of the World and almost hit a cow.
-couldn't find the End of the World.
-listened to Hot For Teacher on the way to Forest Hill.
-drove accross the tallest bridge in California.
-ate pizza!
-got gas.
-talked to some crazy guy that wanted to hitch-hike to "the dam" and tried to give us some "mo-town" so we would let him lay down in the back of the truck "like a log".
-listened to xerog radio.
-went home.

What a day.
