I think i left a Nikon camera around the Sword and Slab boulder on August 12th. If you have found it in the Leavenworth area please let me know.

does anyone have any information about the bouldering and top rope walls along the east bank of the Columbia river in Wenatchee? i have found three sets of bolts along the walking path about half way between the black and tan bridges, allong with at least 6 or 7 large boulders. the other anchor is on a 50 ft wall further north right next to bimbo beach.
