Clem's Holler Rock Climbing
|Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>|
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.
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.
