Description 

The first of several large butresses leading up the canyon, the Eight Mile Butresses, that sit across the road from Eight Mile Campground. There are dozens of small crags littered about these larger formations.
Like just about any other area in Leavenworth, the views and rock quality are world class.


Getting There 

Drive just past Eight Mile Campground, and use any of the pullouts on the right side of the road. The trails are often indistinct, and there are at least three. The best I found started at the largest pullout in the immediate area, perhaps 200 - 300 yards from the entrance to the campground. Expect between fifteen and thirty minutes to the base, depending on your fitness.

The Tree Route 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  WA : Central-East Cascades & Wen... : ... : Lower Eight Mile Buttress
It's no Astroman, but this route has a couple things going for it. The best things about this route are that the rock is impeccable, the line follows the major weakness in the cliff (there's an elegance in this, when it happens, I think), it takes good gear at the 5.6 parts, and you get to climb for a good long while. Except for the bleached crack at the top, the moves are fun. Pitch 1 (5.6): Follow the huge left facing dihedral. Find the line of least resistance, with a few possibilities. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
