Description 

This is a cluster of small cliffs on the approach to the better known Careno Crag. Mostly South and East facing routes in the lower Icicle Creek. They are mostly moderate single pitch trad routes, with some bolted routes.


Getting There 

Directly across the road ( north side)from the Snow Creek trailhead parking lot ( where you will need a NFS pass) but you can park along the road for free. The best trail starts at the dirt bike trials type trail yard.1/8 mile approach.About 2 hundred feet east of Leavenworth Water building on east end of parking lot.
There is a seep that is wet usually all year, the trail left goes up to Poison Ivy crack and planet of the eights.
The right branch heads up to Purina and Careno.

I am tempted to rate this route 5.9, this may be the most sandbagged 5.8 in Leavenworth, but in keeping with the guide book it will be a good challenge for the 5.8 leader....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
