I've had family in town a good part of the week, so it was nice to make an escape to the mountains to be by myself for a few others. I was shocked to meet only one other person on this mountain all day! I didn't expect Grays & Torrey's hordes, but - my gosh, a brilliant day (albeit frigid in the morning), a high Thirteener - amazing that so few make their way here. (No complaining, mind you...)

1/2/10- got a surprise with the road plowed to the grays creek TH, saving me a day and 10 miles of snowshoeing!

the flip side of that was saturday was now my summit day and i endured -5 deg temps in a heavy wind and snowstorm. the rime ice on the northeast ridge was beautiful and spooky simultaneously. finished the day postholing through bottomless snow in the dark for 2.5 hours; what an adventure!

7/2/16- a rainy fourth weekend saw michelle, steve and i abandoning snowmass plans for a weekend of easier climbing, starting with ouray's west ridge. washing machine terrain below treeline made for a wet climb where the sun never quite broke loose. overall enjoyable day, let's go find some sun!

Wife, dog and I via the east ridge. Devil Armchair is beautiful. Unfortunately we couldn't see from the top as the last 800' or so was socked in.

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008


A great climb. I enjoyed the Marshall Pass Road. Me and my friend Jeff spotted Beaver and Deer but saw no other climbers..not much of a trail up this peak. Sunday we went to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, good times!

SarahThompsonDevil's Armchair  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2006


5/14/06 - My first attempt was a month earlier and I turned back near treeline when the wind picked me up and slammed me against the talus! 2nd try was successful. Up NE Ridge, down E Ridge. Nasty snow conditions in the trees.

1/6/18 - Solo winter ascent in extremely dry conditions from Grays Creek TH. Up and down the E Ridge. A lenticular cloud was stuck to the summit and it was horribly windy inside it!

chicagotransplantDevil's Armchair Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2007


Up the NE Ridge, down the East Ridge. This is the way to go on this one, the bristlecone forest at the base of the armchair is beautiful.

Not much snow in this part of the state from the previous days storm, seemed to bypass the southern Sawatch. Clear day, but chilly and windy. Could see Pikes, Uncompahgre, Castle, Evans and Blanca, this peak has some of the longest view corridors I have ever seen!

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006


Beautiful day but the short distance is deceiving. This hike still took quite a while due to the up and down on the ridge and the endless talus. I was relieved when we finally reached the summit. My group only saw one other person the entire day.

Very little snow, probably had the mountain to myself. Had to pay for the great views with a lot of wind!

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2005


3 of us camped at Marshall Pass, got an early start and hiked up the West Ridge, out of the trees by sunrise and on top in time to celebrate my 21st with a Fat Tire before the afternoon storms began building. Fast-growing cumulus led us us to make the call and descend directly down & south off the west ridge into the trees for a chill, meandering walk back.
