Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 98-99 of the book. The book lists two routes, the somewhat-obscure Marshall Ledges Route and the South Ridge Route. The South Ridge route is more accurately named below the South Ridge/South Face Route. Down the page you will find photos of the summit block portion of the South Ridge Route including two high definition photos supplied by John Platt. Climbers have ascended the peak’s North Face but no one has submitted the details. Updated December 2019
This peak is the star of the Seven Devil Mountains. It combines steep faces, talus-covered ramps and an assortment of obstacles into an impressive summit block. Please note that more recent estimates put the elevation of the Tower of Babel at 9,220 feet. USGS He Devil
