Leavenworth and rock climbing near Seattle

Seattle Rock

From down­town Seat­tle a vari­ety of out­stand­ing rock climb­ing areas can be accessed via a one or two hour dri­ve. These areas include Leav­en­worth, North Bend, Mount Garfield, Dar­ring­ton, Index, and Mount Erie, and offer options for both begin­ners and advanced climbers. Alpine rock options can be found too.

Par­tic­i­pants can day trip from Seat­tle or there is the option to car camp, or stay in the com­fort of near­by hotels and enjoy the excel­lent local restau­rants if doing sev­er­al days of climbing.

Each of these loca­tions have dis­tinct rock, and a vari­ety of climbs from 1 – 23 pitch­es long; from the sin­gle-pitch climbs at Mount Erie over­look­ing the beau­ti­ful San Juan Islands, the immac­u­late split­ter cracks of Index said to rival Yosemite, Leav­en­worth’s clas­sics, the long mul­ti-pitch routes on the gran­ite domes of Dar­ring­ton and Mount Garfield, to the eas­i­ly accessed sport climbs of North Bend.
