After climbing at the Silver Tongue Devil Wall on Saturday June 28 Heather and I decide to give are hands a rest from the prickly rock and take a 'rest day' by attempting the alpine scramble Devils Head. I saw a patch of snow on the mountain so we decide to bring the full arsenal: ice axe, crampons, nuts, tricams, webbing, pins, and a full 60 meter rope. We used everything in our packs.

After biking from the bottom of the big hill, an easy ford of the ghost river, we aiming to go up the West side of the Valley of the Birds we ended up going up the east side. After scrambling up a few cliff bands (once belaying off a tree), the very pleasant ridge walk began. After a few hours we found the correct gully system to ascend on Devils Head. Perhaps we should have turned around here, but we persevered kick stepping, scrambling, and route finding, our crampons coming on and off as necessary. We belayed up the crux, but the rap station was buried in ice, after 30 minutes of chopping, I gave up and drove a pin in. We continued up belaying some sections of snow, eventually reaching the summit 10 hours after starting. After a 5 minute victory party on the summit we started down, rappelling and down climbing as necessary. We marched the ridge walk back. We descend the West side of the Valley of the birds (are planned ascent route) and got to the valley floor at 10:00 pm (note that the valley of the birds has a number of waterfall ice climbs and is impossible to descend). Our bacon was saved, we were a mere 200 meters from our bikes or so we thought. The river was now a raging torrent and the cliffs walls and grade of the river bed made the river crossing very intimidating. We scouted out the best place to cross. After making it 2/3 across the river it became waste deep and we had to beat a retreat. I used the last 15 minutes of day light to scout a better place to cross but everything was worse. We settled in for a wet night under our tarp-damn we forgot matches or a lighter or extra food! The next morning the river level had not significantly decrease, so after spending an hour scouting a river crossing, we elected to ascend the West side the valley of the birds, finding an excellent trail. A weary and nauseas traverse (900 meters of elevation gain and loss plus 10 kms), two rappels, and we back at our bikes at 1pm. An easy ford and bike ride bike to the car. A feast, a lethargic, and a nauseous afternoon followed. We could have used more webbing, more pins, a hammer, a lighter, long underwear and a lot more food, lessoned learned. But the route would probably go as describe by other if it were completely dry.

The last thing I want is a wet night under a tarp without food. 900 m extra gain, 10k and 2 raps sounds like an awful lot of work to cross a river. Good job getting out of it!

I would highly recommend waiting until August to climb Devil's Head! The snow and ice made the accent much more challenging..not to mention the raging river.

This trip has also really made me evaluate my survival kit, and the extra gear that I bring out. Ben and I were so lucky that it did not get any colder. So, this is just a reminder that everyone should be prepared for spending the night out. It can happen.

Yesterday, December 27, Jason Wilcox and I climbed the
Water Ice route "Beowulf" (WI4 670m) up the drainage,
quickly climbed "Devil's Punchbowl" then onto the slopes
southwest of Devil's Head. We climbed the standard West
ridge route on Devil's Head to the summit.

This route on Devil's Head was climbed by several RMB'ers
back on August 18. The ice climbing was fast and fun.
We pitched the first pitch of Beowulf, Jason cruised the
lead, then we solo climbed the rest of Beowulf and Devil's
Punchbowl. We topped out on the water ice around 11:00
am.

Then the windy slog up to the gully system on the SW side
of Devil's Head. Slopes were wind blown with little snow,
but the odd patch of wind slab we avoided. Starting up
the gully a mountain goat tried to take out Wilcox with
some rock fall, it was a close call. All rock in the gully, at
the crux chockstone, and the difficult step below the
summit, were covered in very slippery powder snow.

It didn't slow JW down, but I found much of the rock
scrambling difficult with the snow and cold temperatures.
I took a belay at the chockstone on the way up, a short iffy
belay at the start of the difficult step and we both rapped
the descent below the chockstone, but otherwise we
scrambled the route.

We reached the summit of Devil's Head at 3:00pm, just a
quick 7.5 hours from the truck. Air temperature at the
summit read at -20 and the wind was at least 60 kmh, it
was quite cold. We only had a short summit stay. The
way down was quick and we reached the top of the water
ice before dark.

We downclimbed and rapped the water ice in the dark and
were back to the truck around 8:30pm. A nice 13 hour
day. Fatigue and darkness slowed me down on the ice
downclimbing, big shout out to Wilcox for his patience.

Great adventure for my last trip and summit of 2007.

It was a great year with tons of alpine climbing for me,
thanks to all my climbing buddies, I couldn't have done it
with you.

Happy New Year everyone!

On Saturday, Aug 18, Jess and I left camp at about 0630 and started up the hillside to the left of the Valley of the Birds in the Ghost. We topped out on the ridge after about an hour of good trail and looked at how far it was across to Devil's Head... a LONG ways! About 5km of ridge walk lay between us and the east face, but we went on and it actually went rather quickly. It's a nice scenic hike along the ridge-top though, and as you get closer, the face is more and more awe-inspiring.

Once at the face, we contoured around the entire face until we were at the drainage on the SW end of the mountain. Jess started up, making the loose gully look easy and I followed, dodging the occasional rock fall. Stick tight together in this gully and bring your helmet!

The route up from there is quite straightforward and there is one tight chimney with a chockstone and bolts above that is challenging, but we both solo'd it on good rock and good stemming holds, and thought it was reasonable.

4:45 after leaving we were on the summit. One of the faster times in the register, to our surprise. We figured we'd be average at best considering how long the approach seemed to take.

We descended easily, rapping once at the chockstone and once at the loose gully. It was getting a bit windy, so I coiled the rope to pay it out as I rapped and was just about to start down when I heard voices... so I stopped and waited and sure enough it was Andrew and Mark Nugara, and Raff! Funny meeting people you know on a mountain like that! VERY lucky that I didn't toss the ropes or start my rappel though, as when I did (after they were above any danger) I knocked a few good size rocks into the gully - some by accident, some purposely (because the rope probably would have knocked them onto me if I left them on their precarious ledges). If I hadn't hear their voices, I probably would have sent some rocks down the steep gully and injured them at the very least. I don't think any of us realized how lucky we were until after!

If you go, and there is any sign of someone above (we left our poles at the bottom of the gully), make as much noise as possible and move fast in that first gully. You cannot see down the gully from the rap station. And maybe when you are coming down, have one person traverse over and look down the gully to ensure nobody is in the firing range!

I left a new 1" webbing sling and a rap ring at this anchor, so the only gear you'll need to do this route is rope (30m is enough) and harness, plus maybe a few pieces of rock gear if you try and belay the 5.4-ish chimney moves, and a back-up sling (6m is plenty) for my webbing. Probably would require pins to set a station to belay the chimney. Just send the most confident climber up first and have them drag the rope up is what I say! It's only about 3m of 5.4 or maybe 5.5 at the most.
All we used was the webbing to build the second anchor. The pins, hammer, nuts, draws, etc were all useless IMHO. Good thing Jess carried most of that! LOL

Anyway, we returned the same way we went up, and the descent was almost as long - 4.5 hrs down. The ridge walk and downclimbing takes just as long as going up really, so count on your return trip to take as long as it has taken you to get to where you are.

Back at camp and drinking beer about 10 hours after leaving. A stellar day out! Highly recommended route for competent scramblers who are comfortable using a rope. Jess and I are already talking about going back to do the face route next summer. But it's 5.9 trad, so maybe we're just dreaming.... ;-)

I'll try and post some pics this evening.

Devil`s Head is such a cool mountain! The approach we took lead us to some very interesting and unique terrain below the west face. It looked like a mini Dinosaur Provincial Park near Brooks. We found some cool looking hoodoos there, pinnacles, caves big enough for 3 people, natural arches, windows and many other interesting rock formations (see pictures below). We must have spent over an hour exploring this amazing area. Regarding the actual climb, we solo`d the entire route and rapped the chockstone on the way down. We downclimbed the rest. We finished the day by the campfire, drinking beer with Jason and Jess. Thanks for the beers, Jason! It was one of my favourite trips this year! Highly recommended! Even the drive into the Ghost was pretty exciting.

Hey Bill,
Thanks for the pics on your website. They made route-finding a joke. And yeah, I've been looking at that one since my first trip to the Ghost/Waiparous area in 2004!!

Calvin,
It really isn't that terribly difficult. I'm sure any competent scrambler on this board could do it, as long as they know how to rappel.
All five of us on Saturday soloed the entire ascent.

Pics are currently uploading - should be up within a half hour.

Nice pictures Andrew! I was happy to read that Mark down-climbed the crux because I know more than one person who has claimed to solo the entire route without ropes or any other climbing gear and was beginning to think they were lying! :-)

Would the down-climbing be a lot tougher than say, Wapta Mountain in your opinion? It almost looks from the pictures that parts of it could be stemmed but pictures can make it look a lot easier than it really is.

Hey Vern - I think the downclimb on Devil's Head would be easier than the downclimb that we did on Wapta, but I say that mostly because I feel the rock quality on that section of Devil's Head is much better than the rock quality on that section of Wapta.
The moves are probably about the same difficulty.

Andrew, you're welcome for the beer, although I must admit that I regret not having a 24-pack so we didn't run out so fast... ;-)
Loved the comments about Barton's dingy in camp too! LMAO!

Vern,

I would say that the Devil's Head downclimb is a little more difficult than the Wapta downclimb because it is slightly overhanging. The rock is good, but there aren't any huge handholds with which to lower yourself down from. Mark's downclimb was very awkward looking - probably the reason why Raff and I both rappelled.

Having said that, the consequences of slipping on the Devil's Head downclimb would be far less severe than that of Wapta. On Wapta you fall you die (or suffer serious injury enough to make you wish you were dead!). On Devil's Head the exposure and fall distance are much less (probably a couple of broken bones at most).

I would recommend this trip to anyone on this board, but I would definitely take a short rope (15 m ), harness, and rappel device just in case. I can see people getting to that downclimb and saying "What the #$*@, how I am supposed to get down that!"

Andrew

By the way, I just looked at your recent trip reports. Awesome job as usual. I always thoroughly enjoy both report and photos. The "formidable" mountain in your Storelk report is Elpoca Mountain.

Before I had Kane's book I used Bennett Wong's page for scrambling ideas. I remember looking at his Devil's Head page and wondering when I'd get around to doing it. Back then I was pretty enthusiastic and used to think that I could do Kane's book in a span of two years. :)

Hey Sonny,
We went in a little but not too far. Probably about 1 km past marker 39 there is a nice campsite across from The Good, Bad and The Ugly ice climb (weeping wall that is about 50m tall and 40m wide).
I would think that a 4x4 would be good to have to get into marker 39. The first major creek crossing after the big hill is more washed out than last year, but I don't think your vehicle (Honda CRV?) would have any problems. There was a car parked before this crossing when I went in, so they obviously thought it looked like too much for them. Wonder if Raff took his 4Runner in or if they took Andrew's car?

Well, I'm off to get my foot cut up in a few minutes. Wish me luck!

As Kevin says, it is best that all park at Marker 39. If Fish and Wildlife find vehicles beyond the marker, it can hurt Casa's chances of obtaining future access and I believe that vehicles may be fined as well (but not sure about this). "Live the Vision" had a fairly lengthy dicussion about this over the winter.

Made an unsuccessful visit to DH yesterday - we were turned back at the pinnacles due to a raging blizzard and spontaneous rockfall during the sunny breaks. The scenery is amazing! Even the drainage canyons are worth exploring - they all have numerous smooth, polished waterfall chutes and perfectly hemispherical pools which would be nice on a hot day. We also learned these steep, deep canyons have VERY few ways of safely ascending and descending; spent many hours routefinding and traversing since all of them seem to have abrupt drop-offs at many points. We went up the 2nd drainage past GBU and ended up returning on the west side of the 3rd drainage (during another blizzard). Had ropes and harness which certainly came in handy on the return trip - if anyone wants a once-used 15 M rope, it is tied to a tree at the first abrupt wall you see on the left of the third drainage ;)

The badlands area is certainly unique and I could see spending time exploring this area on next year's visit. Is the 5th drainage a simple walk-up to the plateau? If anyone could oblige, a detailed route description would be much appreciated to my email in order to avoid the many hours of routefinding for next trip...

Hi Kerry,
If you don't mind a long ridge-walk I'd highly recommend hiking (yes, it is just a hike) up the west side of the first drainage west of GBU. That's the way we went (first trip report of this thread) and it was a nicely beat, marked (hatchet on tree mostly) trail the whole way to the ridge. Then you walk the ridge for an hour and a half or so, and then traverse below the face to the SW gully system.

So, start gaining elevation in a NW direction around GR238872 and find a good trail going up this hillside which will top out on the ridge around 232882.
Then follow the ridge all the way to the east face of DH. Approx 1km North, then about 1.5km NW and another 1km west.

Hope this helps.

Today Dustin and I got up early to head out to the Ghost for an ascent of Devils Head (hopefully not epic). This was one of the first peaks I could recognize when I moved to Calgary and always wondered about ascending it. Left the truck at post 39 at 645 after hitting a huge rock in the "new" stream crossing just before here. Waded the Ghost River 3 times, me in waders and Dustin in boots and gaiters then up the trail on the west side of Valley of the Birds. This trail was a pleasant surprise - easy to follow and much better than I expected. With this approach, there is no scrambling until you start ascending the south side gullies directly on the peak. When we got to the ridge top the wind was gusting over 100 km/h and would remain like that for the entire day which was a bit unpleasant to say the least. We bypassed the main area of hoodoos on the southeast side of the peak and started scrambling up. Using some notes from Bill Kerr's excellent route description, routefinding was a breeze and we were on the summit by 1150. We found a place out of the wind just above the vertical east face and stayed for half an hour. Checking the register, there was a party of two on Sunday and a Ramblers trip in July for other ascents this year. Downclimbing the upper crux was no problem at all but we decided to rap the lower crux (chockstone) simply because we didn't want to have lugged the rope all the way up there for nothing. Some tedious and one by one descending the main gully followed, and we were certainly glad to be only 2 with all of the rockfall. Once out and back on walking territory the wind picked up again. We had a break in a huge cave we discovered on the ridge - big enough to park a small car in. Then, back down to the truck and out on that awful road which is in much worse shape this year than ever. It took us just over 9 hours round trip including half an hour on the summit.

-there are new "End of Trail" signs at a post 38/40 near the Good Bad & Ugly ice climb
-if anyone goes up, the pencils are shoddy and the register booklet moldy - probably the canister is leaking so bring new stuff if you can. I can provide a full register kit if you want to pick it up at my place.
