Devil's kitchen is the first wall you come to (on right) as you drive up the access road. Located a few hundred feet west of the east lookout parking lot. you can either park at the east look out or park on the edge of the access road.

Because this area is lower on the mountain, this area prone to remaining wet after a good rain. It's also one of the most shaded areas hear. To access the top you can use the 2ed to 4th class scrambles scattered about the length of the 600 foot long area.

Getting There 

Park on the right side of the road and walk the short distance to the base of the rock.

It starts out pretty sharp but turns into a real sloper near the top and overhangs about 5 degrees or so....[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
