Devil Peak is quite steep, with talus that sounds like broken china plates as you traverse. Make this a winter trip; the views of the Spring Mountains are quite nice. This peak is geologically unusual, as a lone rhyolite prominence in a limestone terrain. There is a "perlite" mine near the base, where the edges of the rhyolite cooled quickly into obsidian, which was later hydrated. Trip report for Devil Peak near Jean, NV
