Some areas require a guide.


The Kitchen is a relatively small area with one of the shortest approaches at Hueco. Most of the problems are located on two boulders that face each other, so half of the problems face East, and the other half face West.

The boulders are positioned on a large, sloping slab, so the landings are generally not ideal. Its good to have a number of pads, and a spotter to prevent you from rolling down the slab.

Getting There 

The Kitchen is located literally 30 yds southwest of the Ranch House parking lot, near the entrance station on the North side of North Mountain. From the parking lot, follow the gravel path East as it winds around the ruins near the Ranch House. After 30 yds, the trail forks. Head right. Go 10 yds, then gain the large slab, and traverse west to the Kitchen.

A three-foot dyno leads to what is surely one of the sharpest jugs at Hueco. Tape highly recommended!
