Description 

Although there are fewer bouldering areas in Tumwater than Icicle Creek, there is still plenty of love to be found here.

Approaches are short, the rock is bomber, and it's just a quick drive from town.


Getting There 

Drive west from Leavenworth on Highway 2. Mileages are typically reported from the intersection of Highway 2 and the intersection with Icicle Creek Road on the west side of town.

Kyle on Dyno 101

Dyno 101 V3 6A  WA : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : The Beach
I hesitate to give a 1-move boulder problem a "classic" rating, but this truly is one of the best dynos around. It's a perfect introduction to large outdoor dynos, and features a great starting hold and a perfect lip to throw to.Try it with your left hand, your right hand, both hands at once, barefoot, with a crashpad on your back, or any other way you can think of. I did it almost 10 times in a row just for the fun of it.It'll feel easier than V3 if you're tall....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
