Cragging in Washington

Early August, Kyle Neeley and I had plans to climb in the Bugaboos in Canada. Unfortunately weather didn't work out so we headed to Index, WA and Leavenworth, WA. Climbing at Index is humbling. Slick granite combined with stiff grades...we loved it. We climbed as many classics as we could while the weather held and then went to Leavenworth.

Leavenworth isn't as good as Index, but it does have an ultra classic 800ft 5.9 climb and great bouldering. So...we did both to finish up a week of climbing.

Thin fingers, delicate feet

Small gear

Perfect hands

Sea of granite

Topping out on Outer Space

Rest day bouldering

Working the moves
