Description

Sunny South facing crag, crowded if you are hemmed in by wildflowers and rattlesnakes. If you are working your way through all the climbs in Leavenworth, this long hike is worth it for a few adventurous routes.
It took us about 1 hour, 15 min, taking pictures along the way to reach the base of Cockfight.

Getting There

this wall and Swingline are directly above upper 8 mile crag. The best approach is the Memorial Buttress trail which is on the east (right) side of 8 Mile crag. The trail starts about 400 feet east of the 8 Mile Campground road. You will pass Stones throw with a few bolted routes, the Crack Du Jour area next on the left, another 20 min. and Memorial Buttress will be on the right, you will go more left entering a gully crossing to left side for a good trail up to South Park and the Crystal Cave.You will pass a large boulder in the gully with bivy spots for camping. As the gully narrows down the Buzzbomb Buttress will be on the left with Crystal Cave above, good ledges bring you to Buzzbomb and Swingline further left.Cockfight is further up right near where the gully is just a little waterfall and brushy.
