The Leavenworth area is one of the most popular bouldering regions in the Pacific Northwest. The rock is granite, with a grain somewhat larger than that of the Skykomish Valley boulders, but the terrain tends to be flatter and the environment drier.
To get to there from Seattle, take I-5 to Highway 2 and follow it over Stevens Pass to the town of Leavenworth, or take I-90 to Highway 97 and head north to Highway 2, then bank west.

The rock is perfect and so are the surroundings. Solid Gold is an excellent route at a moderate length offering a nice alpine challenge.Many feel that that the first pitch is the crux although not the technical crux of the climb. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
