Description

Devil's Den is home to the largest cliffs in the park and contains a collection of overhanging cracks, mellow chimneys, and steep faces as well as a few of the most difficult climbs in the area. New sport routes have popped up over the years in the 12-13 range while a number of the other climbs have been slowly reclaimed by lichen. There are a handful of multipitch routes scattered across the crag, although this area sees relatively little action. If you're looking for something hard, this is the place... check out Friend of the Devil 13a, Sympathy for the Devil 13b, or the unnamed arete out the right edge of the cave 13b.

Getting There

Follow the trail from Boulder Natural towards North Mountain which is well marked and easy to follow. In less than 5 minutes the cliff will be visible ahead.

there are guidebooks for devils den and all of the park they sold them at rei ems and IME. sweet trad in devils den ,like lycra sanction. really good deihedral near boulder natural 5.8 about 60 feet nice climbing . lower cliff has some sweet climbs also good leads . there is so much developed climbing there since before they started grading boulder problems with V's. long history in pawtuckaway of great climbing overshadowed by recent bouldering frenzy. but all climbing is sweet so rip it up!
