Description

Puzzle Palace is currently home to 3 fully bolted routes of good quality. There is some potential here for new development. The crag faces west, high in Tumwater canyon and provides interesting climbing on highly textured, sharp rock. This crag seems lightly traveled-- you won't find yourself connecting strings of chalked holds here. As a consequence, there is some small loose stuff around most of the routes. It is not a bad idea to wear a helmet while climbing and belaying at this crag.

Getting There

To get to Puzzle Palace, head right on the trail from Clem's Holler towards the Nut House. When you get to the large gully before the Nut House head up, staying to the left of a rocky rib. It is a fair climb up to the base of the crag, perhaps 10-15 minutes from the Nut House.
