Ascent Trip Report

Drove 3.5 miles on county road starting at the end of Pahatsi Road to the parking lot at Devil's Outlook XC hut. Road is in good shape for any vehicle; Subaru Outlook had no problem. Hiked on Wagon Train XC trail/rough road to Klondike Lil's trail, which is a paved road. Continued to Horseshoe Meadow and up the Devil's Peak XC trail, which is part rough overgrown road and part cross country. Continued up rocks and through brush to the base of the SW face/chute. Easy 3rd class climbing leads to the lower south summit with the USGS markers. The traverse to the north and higher summit is long, difficult class 2.
