Woke up Sunday and decided for a short but exciting hike, so off to Devils Castles I went. Had good weather and thanks for the steps cut into the snow\ice on the switchbacks the climb went well. Other than a mountain goat I had the ridge\peak to myself. After passing the helivac retrieving someone off the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon I kept thinking of hand graps while climbing the class V areas.
Awesome climb! Only a half day, yet some of the wildest terrain in all the Wasatch. Traverse really wasn't as scary as I'd expected...still fun, challenging scramble. Descent to east was more tedious and challenging than expected.
Climbed a few times.
I climb this several times each year to practice my Class 4 and low Class 5 moves with exposure. The views are great as well.
