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.

Getting There

To find the Clem's Holler area, 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.
