I might travel around Seattle for a week or a little longer in late april. Have never climbed in the state - would Index or Leavenworth be doable? How hard it is to find partners? I lead up to easy 5.10 trad, hard 5.11 sport. Will have rack and rope etc., would be up for single or multipitch.

(I will be driving from Boise and my alternative is to spend some time in oregon, but I have been to Smith and wouldnt mind checking out new places). Thanks.

Leavenworth is usually warm and dry in April, at least at the lower elevation crags. The alpine climbs will still be snow covered. There is a free campsite where a lot of climbers stay that makes it possible to hook up with partners. cascadeclimbers.com is also a good source to meet people. Index is amazing, and some of my best days ever there have been in April. On the other hand it is liable to rain every day there as well, very hit or miss in the spring. Luckily its just a short drive over the pass between the two so you can play it by ear with the weather. SpencerG
