Crag features

Crags in Tumwater Canyon, along Highway US-2 West of Leavenworth, WA. First recorded climbs date from the 1940s, but many crags have been developed in the last few years. A mix of trad, sport, (multipitch) and plenty of boulders. Climbs are ordered from Leavenworth outwards which follows the convention of the guidebooks.

Approach notes

Heading out along US-2 from Leavenworth there are trailheads and parking laybys, but be considerate and obey USFS signs. For the early boulders and the beach area, park at the 'Old Pipeline Trailhead' (if you miss the turning there is a layby 2 mins further along where you can turn back around) and follow the trail North from the trailhead (the parking lot boulder is obvious). For Castle Rock, park at the 'Castle Rock Trailhead'.
