South Side of Devils Dome # 4178

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2003.08.12
Vantage Point: From southeast

Caption: Devils Dome (centre) and False Devils Dome from the meadow to the southeast.

PhotoDescr: The standard and classic route on Devils Dome follows the vague crest of the southeast ridge on the right side of the peak (right of the small gullied depression on the upper right of the south face) and is a nice four-pitch climb of only moderate difficulty. The Putnam guidebook records a 5.8 route on the south face, but this was corrected in the 1983 CAJ to clarify it as essentially the same thing as either the gully route between False and Devils, which finishes up the south face above the end of the couloir, or the southeast ridge.

The south ridge of False Devils looks to be a very nice climb, dramatic, despite being "mostly 4th class". Exorcist's Diedre (5.7) takes the right-hand of the huge, slanting off-width chimneys on the southeast face of False Devils Dome, climbing mostly on the wall to the left of the chimney.
