About Hemmed In Hollow:

Hemmed in Hollow is home to the tallest waterfall between the Rockies and the Appalachians. It is also home to a few climbing routes. Late December to early February usually has good conditions for some ice climbing to form. No bolts are allowed in the Buffalo National River area, so all routes are trad, toprope, or SOLO. Most climbs are between 150-250 ft. This is a popular destination for backpackers and "Repellers" as the rednecks call themselves, so watch for rockfall...
