Carnival Crag

Washington > Central-E Casca… > Leavenworth > Icicle Creek
Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

A crag with a short approach, sunny south-facing aspect and home of the locally famous off-width challenge, Carnival Crack. The rock is well featured and solid, albeit less traveled than other crags.

Getting There

Park at the 8-mile rock where the commonly traveled Classic Crack is located. Carnival crack is easily spotted from the road. Hike up the hill on an established trail to the base. If you are aiming to set up a top rope, from the base go to the climber's right and follow the trail to the top.
