Getting There

Park in the parking lot by the popular beach on the Wenatchee, 1.6 miles West on Highway 2 from the intersection with Icicle Rd in Leavenworth (Google Maps, GPS: 47.587438, -120.707449).

Walk north from the beach parking lot and cross the pipeline bridge on your left. On the other (West) side of the bridge the main trail turns right (North) and there are several smaller trails straight (West) into the bushes. Take any of these trails -- the Kramer guide says their are cairns, but we couldn't find any -- and proceed up the steep hill until you arrive at the crags. They're not easy to see from way down below, but are basically straight up from the bridge, in the direction the bridge points (). Probably 15 to 30 minutes scrambling, depending on how well you choose your path up the steep hill.

GPS coords of lowest tower (routes 1 through 4 in the Kramer guide): 47.587306, -120.711783.

The pullout for the beach parking is 1.6 miles up Highway 2 from the intersection with Icicle Road. I updated the directions section, so feel free to delete these comments if the directions looks good to you now. Oct 31, 2017

Thanks for adding the area. How far up the Tumwater is this bridge from Leavenworth? Oct 31, 2017
