The Swiftwater boulders are an easily accessible group of boulders that lie on both sides of Hwy. 2. There are a handful of classics here as well as plenty of other problems to play around on and warm up on.

A few of the boulders are directly adjacent to the parking area, and many more can be found just across the highway slightly upstream from the parking area.

Getting There 

From Leavenworth drive approximately 7 miles up Tumwater Canyon (Hwy. 2). Keep a lookout for a picnic area on the left side of the road (I believe it's called the Swiftwater picnic area). Park in the parking lot.
