    • This was a long day hike for Chuck and myself.  The elevation gain was more than it needed to be as a result of some poor route finding, backtracking, etc. etc. etc..  The final section of the northwest face of the Devil's Bedstead (East) has approximately 1,000' of sustained class 3 scrambling to the summit.
