The Devil has many stones.
This particular Teufelstein is to be found on top of a mountain near to the village of Fischbach in the Austrian province of Styria.
With a companion I was there to take a look at the route of a mountain marathon we had under consideration.
It was an enjoyable experience to gallop along in the sunshine over a couple of sections of the course, including the section which crosses the moorland road at the top of the pass under the shadow of the Teufelstein.
We slept in a mountain hut after a lovely Austrian evening full of beer and music and dancing and singing.
The next day was hot. We went to an outdoor swimming pool to cool off. But soon we had to run for cover. A tremendous thunderstorm. There was considerable damage and many roads were closed.
I didn't do the race.
