Overview

Gun Rack is a fun 2 pitch climb on Clem's Holler area in Tumwater Canyon. The first pitch features a large double roof that must be overcome, while the second pitch features some slab / face and a short section of crack.

Getting There

From Leavenworth, drive west down highway 2 for .6 miles past the junction and park in the pullout on the south side of the street. Find the trail about 100 feet west of here and follow it steeply up the hillside for 20 minutes to the base of the crag. Gun Rack starts on the left side of this formation directly under the big double roof.
