Leavenworth is Washington’s premier rock-climbing hub. Within a ten-mile radius of town there are 50 crags offering short and long climbs of all difficulty on clean, solid granite. Outer Space (5.9), Orbit (5.9), and Iconoclast (5.10c) on Snow Creek Wall are multi-pitch routes that climbers from around the country come to tick off. Meanwhile, the walls of Castle Rock, Midnight Rock (Tumwater Canyon), Careno Crag, and Givler’s Dome (Icicle Canyon) house many more of the state’s best climbs. Just a short drive from Leavenworth is another popular climbing destination, Peshastin Pinnacles, a 34-acre state park whose sandstone slabs offer multi-pitch climbs overlooking the orchards of the Wenatchee River Valley and the peaks of the Cascade range. Rock and Ice Magazine chose Leavenworth as one of the top 10 climbing cities in the US.
