Seven Devils Wilderness Day 3 (Part 1), Idaho

Saturday turned out to be a glorious day which was good because we had 4 peaks to bag!  See John’s trip report here if you haven’t already.  We were up fairly early so I grabbed a quick shot of Sheep Lake.

I was a very cool climb with lots of views and little exposure, which makes me happy!

Speaking of views, there are at least 10 lakes in this image….can you find them all?  Wow!

Hells Canyon behind them.

The decent off the back side of He Devil…… was hell!  300 vertical feet of class 4.  No problem for the brothers but I was scared to death!!!!!

Pictures don’t really do this decent justice but from a distance it looks pretty impassable! She Devil goes up off the image to the right, He Devil is the next peak on the right and we came down the rocks just to the right of the scree shoots.
