He Devil

Elevation: 9,420 ft
Prominence: 5,240

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 99-100 of the book.


The latest official elevation for this peak is 9,420 feet which replaces the prior 9,393-foot measurement. As you will read below, there is a question about whether He Devil or She Devil is the highest peak in the Seven Devils Mountains. Both peaks now have official measurements of 9,420 feet. He Devil is a great peak and is worthy of your attention even if it is not the highest peak in the range. USGS He Devil

Ken Jones writes: He Devil/She Devil (July 24, 2001). Your description of the route from the col up the East Ridge of He Devil was not enough for us to follow it in reverse. But it’s a complex route, and I’m not sure I could describe it better. A more important point is the elevations. The latest (7-1/2′) USGS quad shows both peaks at 9,400+. Our sighting back and forth could not determine which was higher, though I thought He Devil might be by a foot or so. It is not clear that He Devil is “the highest Seven Devils summit.”
