Climbing Area Description
Holloway Mountain is a fantastic area for new climbers. The top access to the rock allows for easy toprope setup, but make sure to bring static line, slings or cordelette, because the wall is lacking bolted anchors. There are a couple of bolted sport routes at Holloway, including Changeling, a 5.12. There are also some great trad leads as well.

The rock gets the sun in the afternoon, which allows for great conditions all year round if it isn't snowing. Weekends can occasionally be crowded, especially in summer, but weekdays are a great time to hit up Holloway.

Holloway is used by Appalachian State University's Recreation Management program to teach climbing site facilitation, and is also utilized by several other local schools for outdoor education, so it is possible to run into a group of students while climbing. They typically stick to the right side of the rock.
