Description

Clem's Holler and the surrounding crags (Puzzle Palace, Nut House, Special Spot, Retardant Rock) offer a wide variety of climbs. Most of the climbs are single pitch, though some multi-pitch options exist. Most climbs require some supplemental gear, though there are also some nice purely bolted climbs. Most of the crags face south and have lots of sun exposure.

The approach is steep but worth the while. Each of the crags has one or more worthwhile routes of the sport and trad variety, especially in the 5.10 range. May 12, 2016

Correction on the approach beta: the trail heads up about 100ft from the parking, not 100 yards. May 23, 2013
