It started to rain five days before we were supposed to leave Squamish and the forecast called for rain for the whole time. What a bummer! I had heard of some good bouldering in Leavenworth, WA but had never been there before and was hesitant to leave Squamish so early. So we went to the Howe Sound Brewery to think about it over some Yammer Jammers and beer. The next morning we packed things up and it was back to States.
Leavenworth is a quaint little town on the eastern side of the cascades and at about the same latitude as Seattle. The town itself is Bavaria themed and the whole downtown actually looks like an old Bavarian village. Anyway, the bouldering there is amazing with quality granite and many 5 star lines. We didn't take too many pics but here are a few...

Icicle creek is beautiful and a great place to take a bath or have a picnic.
