Approach


Use Approach 2B on the Main Page for this route. That approach ends at the saddle on the east side of Mt. Baal. A simple Class 3 scramble up and over Baal gets you to the foot of She Devil's East Ridge.

Route Description


While you're up on Mt. Baal you should be able to see a faint scrambler's path leading out from the saddle onto the low-angle North Face of She Devil. This path more or less disappears into the Class 3 rock. At which point, simply scramble up and left in a gradual ascent to eventually gain the ridge crest.

There are one or two false summits to contend with. The summit is the home of a large cairn and heavy iron register. In fact, the largest, heaviest registers I've ever come across were those of the Seven Devils Wilderness.

Time = 1-2 hours from the east side of Mt. Baal (400 ft of gain, 150 ft of loss)

Essential Gear


No specific gear necessary.
Helmets not necessary for this route but the West Ridge Route (if descending that way) involves more gully travel. As long as folks stay reasonably close together, helmets will merely be a waste of weight.
