Dutring my very first trip to the Bend my companion and I hiked into Devil's Den just like you did. We made it over half way through when we became stymied by a pouroff. We maybe could have made it over/around it, but we headed back. I am pretty sure I have read posts on BBC from people who have made it all the way, even without ropes.
Yes, it it possible to go all the way through without ropes, but you may need the help of companions to surmount some of the pouroffs.
Yep, that's what the rope is for: allowing my abler, younger and stronger companions to haul me up with it.
Wait....but you were the one setting new personal bests doing Cross Fit - seems like just a couple of weeks ago, right?

Interesting to note that the 'toe' that had been sticking out near the top of the swirl has broken off and is resting at its bottom these 24 years later.
We it must have been recent because it was there in Feb. 2014
