Leavenworth, Washington Pass
So in an effort to climb trad more effectively, efficiently, and stylishly, I signed myself up for Mountain Madness' Alpine Rock Seminar. We started out at O'Grady's in Leavenworth, spent a few days there, and then tooled up to Washington Pass in the North Cascades. It was incredible!!! The climbing was awesome- super textured granite with slabs, chimneys, splitters, and off width. Ian, our guide and instructor was a human encyclopedia, a patient teacher, and a bank of stories. I had such an awesome time. I learned a bunch too!!!! I can't wait for my ankle to heal up. I've gotta go climbing!
