Description 

Clem's Holler hosts a selection of worthwhile single pitch and two pitch sport routes. The rock faces south and gets lots of sun, so it is climbable earlier and later in the year than many other crags in the area, though the base of the wall is shaded by trees, which is nice on hot days. Together with other nearby crags (Puzzle Palace, Nut House, Retardant Rock, Special Spot) Clem's Holler offers a wide range of climbing and difficulty. This can be a busy area on weekends.

Getting There 

To find Clem's Holler, drive about 0.5 miles west out of Leavenworth. Park in a pullout on the south side of the road, across from a "Deer for 7 miles" sign on the north side. The approach trail begins about 100 yards up from the pullout on the north side of the road.

Gun Rack 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WA : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : Clem's Holler
Gun Rack has a brilliant double roof sequence (especially for the grade), with mostly pedestrian climbing before and after. There's an optional second pitch of easy slabbing (5.6 or .7, crux at top). By skipping (or back cleaning) some of the first pitch bolts, it's reasonable to climb the entire route as one long pitch (two raps with a single rope). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
