Ascent Trip ReportPlanned on She Devil and He Devil the next day. Walked up to lookout for some exercise and to discuss small fire smoldering low on Dry Diggins Ridge. Lookout said it had been there a week. But today was a bit windier, warmer, and less humid than previous days, and this fire was starting to grow. By next morning, it was reaching the ridgetop, and we decided not to do the climb. Just as well for me; I wanted the views, and you couldn't even see down to the west side of Hells Canyon.
