|locke456||Sheep Lake Is The Perfect Climber's Lair |
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
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
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 !

|Sawtooth Scott||From East to Northwest |
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 1984
|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.|

|Cornvallis||He Devil NW ridge via climbers route |
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.|

|mhengst||He Devil from the West, She Devil from the East starting at the saddle |
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.

|calebEOC||Two days - wretched heat |
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010
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.
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.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2008
|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.|

|I climbed the Devils along with Baal and the Tower of Babel. Didn't see a soul for days. Saw Pan playing his flute along the southern flank of the mountain, or, perhaps, it may have just been a goat.|

Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2007
|Out of a planned 3 night trip to the Seven Devils, this was the only peak I was able to summit thanks to 2-3 inches of snow on the first night which never really melted out much. I took the scree field between Baal and She Devil both up and down and followed the east ridge to the summit. The snow made things interesting, and made the summit more rewarding. I'll have to go back to play around more... great mountains!|

|Dean||Two days |
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2006
|As Bob mentioned, we hiked in on Saturday and did He Devil. Not enough water and electrolytes did a number on me by the end of the day but getting hydrated and proper electrolytes put me back on track for an actually bigger day on sunday. I felt He Devil was easier than She Devil due to the much better access and easy ridge. |
There were a zillion butterflies up there, almost clouds of thembut they were beautiful. Sheep Lake is a beautiful lake.

|Dean and I hiked in and camped at Sheep Lake on Aug 5, then climbed He. Dean was feeling sick that evening and we agreed that we'd abandon She if he wasn't much better in the morning. To my surprise he was ready to go up in the morning, so we traversed She - up the east side, down the west side. We didn't much like the scree/talus/boulders on either route. I think that attitude comes from getting old, with slowed reflexes and too many accidents/injuries or close calls in our memory banks.|

Date Climbed: Oct 6, 2001
|Wonderful day. The descent off He Devil was never difficult, but we weren't sure it would go until we hit the ground. The scree coming down between She Devil and Mt. Baal is impressive.|
Did this one again on 9.4.13.
This TR has pics of the 3rd class descent off the east side of He Devil

|mountaingazelle||Route Climbed: He Devil - Up Northwest Ridge, Down East Ridge Date Climbed: August 9, 2005|
|I took the short-cut over Goat Pass and then climbed up the Northeast Ridge of He Devil. It took longer than I thought to hike over there. The ridge was fun and not too difficult. There was a wildfire two canyons south of us and the air was really smoky. I wanted to continue on the ridge to climb She Devil but an incoming thunderstorm made me change my mind. I would like to go back and climb the rest of the Seven Devil Mountains.|

|mrh||Route Climbed: South face Date Climbed: August 7, 2004|
|Came up the south face of She Devil from the saddle between She Devil and The Ogre. Found a wide ledge with an overhand across the SW face that took me to a high point on the main west ridge; from which I proceeded to the top. |
On the top I met Klenke and Cash and had lunch. After pictures I headed across the back of Baal to The Tower of Babel. All the peaks were busy with people on this day.

Traverse from Tower of Babel and Baal.
Played "Ring around the Mountain" with a mountain goat on Baal.
The sole of Fred's mountain boot came off on the summit, so we had to descend, rather than going on the He Devil.
Hurray for duct-tape, safety pins and webbing!
