Climb the central portion of middle 8 mile buttress towards the "finger" at the top.

Crux of the route is down low on the first pitch.

Last pitch is not to be missed. Maybe one of the most fun I have done in Leavenworth in the past 20 years.


Three bolted anchors with chains.

Route can be rappelled with a 70 meter. Not sure of the walk off if you top out. Route ends about 50 feet (easy ground) below the summit of middle 8 mile buttress.


5 or 6 bolts and a standard single 0.3 to 3 BD SLCDs protected it well.

I really liked the crack parts, but the bolted parts on the first pitch were pretty scary, but I guess I always feel that way on Leavenworth slabs. However I was fine with bolting on Mr. Tremendous and really liked that route.
Agree that the 3rd pitch is cool, several variations can be done up there.
And yes you can walk off, even in the dark without headlamps, but I don't recommend it. If you don't leave anything at the base of 8mile it is better to trend east and pick up the Memorial Buttress trail which is better. May 28, 2014
