Ascent Trip ReportThis trip was the highlight of 2010 for me. I left work late friday and managed to make it to a campground just outside Riggins where I threw out my tent and slept for a couple hours before driving on up to Windy Pass Campground early the next morning.
I had a little trouble finding the correct trail to cross Billy Goat Pass, but eventually found my way up and over the ridgeline. I did lose the trail again where it drops down into the lake, but I was more interested in traversing over to She Devil. I circumnavigated around the base of Tower of Babel and over the top of Mt Baal. Temperatures creeped up all day until hitting the 80's by the time I was dropping down into Sheep Lake. I was spent and feeling like heat exhaustion was near as I started towards He Devil, so I optioned instead for a trip back to Riggins to rehydrate before attempting He Devil the next day.
