Icicle Creek Canyon
There's something for everyone in the Leavenworth area - trad, sport, bouldering, hiking, and alpine climbing! Depending on people's climbing preferences, we can branch off into little groups during the day, and then meet up at night for a campfire, food, drinks, epic stories etc...
Here's a link to the general area if you've never been... http://www.summitpost.org/leavenworth-area-climbs/153780
Feel free to come for the weekend or just a day (see below). I plan on getting out there Thurs. or early Friday to snag a group camping spot at 8-mile Campground. I will post a note on this website as well as the big message board at the entrance to the campground with the site # so that we all have a central meeting place. Once our group site is filled (1st come; 1st served), grab a site close by (they fill up quickly - hint hint). Several other nice campgrounds can be found further up Icicle Rd.
Viktor Kramar has a great guidebook to the area, Leavenworth Rock, but several other books have good route descriptions too. The climbing crags are very spread out so we won't be climbing in a big group. Please indicate if you have a rope, lead gear, guidebook etc. Due to the nature of the Leavenworth area, this is not a good event for novice climbers. Please have your own personal climbing gear and know how to belay safely.
Get ready to rock! :)
