apachedinoBaal to He Devil Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2015


Got in late to the very nice and free 7 Devils campground. The "goat" trail is not to be found at 7 Devils lake, but rather past the camp spot just past the single bathroom. Very nice trail to the pass, the scree from in front of Tower of Babel down and then up to the saddle with Baal is only bad on the traverse, the up and down is fine. Fun traverse with the possibility to make it harder by staying direct. The 4th class chimney is solid, but because of the bulge maybe scary for some. Nice ledge traverse to the notch shows the intimidating east face of He Devil off very well. Sheep Lake is beautiful and has great camp spots we wish we got to use. Very fun lollipop loop!

I was coming through on a harley so I was hoping the dirt road was as good as they say. It was!

Sheep lake was beautiful- camping there would be great.

He Devil west ridge for the third time. This time with Sassyplatt.

The goal was to join Boisedoc, SuperDave, and SawtoothSean & Jamie for He Devil traverse to Tower of Babel. Turned around at summit of He. Fourth time going back to climb Tower of Babel. Oh well- it's still there.

fun day with superdave and sawtooth sean and jammie. Northwest Ridge of He Devil is straightforward and fun. Descent to the He/She Saddle was more involved in some complicated terrain. She Devil from the He/She Saddle also straightforward but a little harder climbing (and some exposure that could probably be minimized with more judicious routefinding). Descent from She Devil toward Mt. Baal was pretty easy (class 2). The descent from the Baal/ She Devil saddle toward Sheep Lake involves some truly heinous scree

Great day with a fun group. Fun but easy scramble up the northeast ridge of He, then a class 4 descent before heading over to summit She. Love the class 3+ ledge climb up She. Finished the day with Baal and Babel.Trip Report

Took Approach 2B: High Route to She Devil. I thought the traverse to the saddle just north of Tower of Babel was slow and tedious and doubted it was the most efficient route to She Devil. Decided I did not have time for Tower of Babel, but tagged Mount Baal on the ridge traverse towards She Devil. Climbed East ridge of She Devil, then backtracked and descended the scree/talus from the notch just between Mount Baal and She Devil. This descent went slowly on the steep scree and loose talus while I replayed stories of past climber accidents on loose talus. Took the climbers Trail back to Seven Devils CG from Sheep Lake. Very impressed with the ruggedness of the area. Will return some day for He Devil.

Climbed with my buddy, Bill. We hiked in and set up camp at Sheep Lake (no sheep there but there was a goat family). Hiked up He Devil thinking we could run the ridge down to Babel but we couldn't find a way down so had to reverse our path back. Very hazy from the fires in the Wallowas, couldn't even see across Hells Canyon to them. Hiked back out the next day and went on to Borah.

Babel's north ridge was tricky, but most of the climbing was easier after that. Returned directly to Windy Saddle across the valley with the big lake. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2011


Took the short but gorgeous route from Windy Saddle up the climber's trail and back down to Sheep Lake. Spent the night in a perfect little spot of rock that jutted out into the lake a bit, then summited in the morning. Would love to come back here sometime, set up a "base camp" at Sheep Lake, and tackle a few more of the nearby peaks.

Solo trip and first good sized solo summits -
Took the climbers trail from windy saddle to sheep lake saturday morning

He Devil:
Climbed via the NW ridge. Got a little confused when crossing the saddle at the north ridge before realize gully crossing was needed to get over the the NW ridge. Fantastic views

She Devil:
Wasnt planning on it but added it Sunday morning. Took the North talus field from sheep lake between she devil and mt baal. Miserable talus (everything is loose). Faint climbers trail from saddle just below the ridge on the north side of she devil. Summited in 1 hour but took 1.5 hours to get down since the climbers path was hard to follow and the talus field was miserable to come down. Great views though !

Had a blast hiking into Sheep Lake with college friends and enjoying the Devils. I climbed the He Devil alone using the East Ridge route up and the NW Ridge for the return leg. The chimney gave me a bit of a start as I found the rock to be of poor quality there. Upon returning to camp at the lake my friends had baked potatoes from the fire on the menu. We were greeted on our final morning with a dusting of snow. A fun climb and great company.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Left Boise at 4am for a solo day hike. Never been in the Devils before, so I was delighted about many things and had a great time. The climbers route was easy to find and follow. Sheep lake was fantstic. I actually contemplated just stopping there and relaxing with my feet in the water all day, but I pushed on and had a nice dip on the way back. The NW ridge and both summits were staight forward and easy class 3. Enjoyed the warm sunny summit in solitude for about and hour eyeballing and considering dropping down to the saddle between He and She, scrambling up She and then dropping back down to Sheep lake for a swim, but I had been having such a nice day I decided not to ruin it with to much of a good thing. Nice dip in Sheep lake on the way back. Top 5 nicest lakes I have seen. Unfortunately by the time I climbed back up to goat pass I was all sweaty and dusty, and needed another dip in the lake. Only bummer about the route, decent gain on your back to that saddle. Great burger and tots at the River Rock Cafe in Riggins and back to Boise by 930.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2010


Did these as the start of a traverse from He Devil to Tower of Babel.

He Devil had some interesting class 3+ from the He / She saddle the way I went but I found a bit easier return route that avoided most of the hairy stuff. One crack early on had a somewhat questionable chockstone we didn't care for.

Weather was cold and windy and the top of He Devil had frost on the rocks and trees.

She Devil was an easy scramble on both sides.

She Devil
July 24 - Did the high route to summit of Baal and She Devil. Did not see a snow free route up the steep east face of He Devil, which was steep enough to dissuade me even without the snow so I downclimbed the gully between She Devil and Baal to Sheep Lake. Hiked over to the NW ridge of He Devil but at 1pm and with 80-90 degree heat I was feeling the effects of heat exhaustion and returned to camp at Windy Saddle. Drove down to Riggins and picked up some proteins and gatorades then drove back to Windy Saddle and crashed at 7pm.

He Devil
July 25 - Got a 5am start to avoid the heat and did Billy Goat Pass to Sheep Lake, cut around east side of lake to NW Ridge route and summited at 8am. Back to camp by 11am. 105 degrees in Riggins, on the drive home.

In a long day from Windy Saddle Campground via the climber's trail over Goat Pass, down to Sheep Lake, up to the saddle between Sheep and Rock Island Lake, across the basin to the base of the NW Ridge and up the ridge. Back the way we came. 9 hours. Great scenery.
