|June 24-25, 2006|
Met up with the Denyers and Chris & Shauna and did some climbing in the sweltering heat.
Canary (5.9) Classic on Castle Rock, the first pitch was hard to get around the roof to Saber ledge with little pro.
Damnation Crack (5.9) The start was wide to get a good jam, the top part is mainly a wide chimney, use little crack on the faces, kind of scary.
Saints (5.8+) Did the first pitch to top rope Angel Crack. The crack is thin fingers for me, sweating in the heat made it also harder.
Angel Crack (5.10b) Polished, can't get any foot, fingers were not very secure either
Next day went to Clem's Holler area
Playin Possum (5.8) Did the first pitch, look for the hidden hold before the third bolt.
Nettlesome (5.9) Slab with one slippery section
Honky's Lament (5.8) Only trad in the area, nice flake, dirty start.
Gun Rack (5.9) Well protected fun roof move if you get a good finger lock in the left cracks. My feet were boiling from heat on the second pitch...
May 13-14, 2006
Met up with bunch friends celebrate Martin's birthday and do some climbing together. Good times!
Dogleg Crack (5.8+) Slippery crux but otherwise nice route
Meat Grinder (5.10a) Tough, overhanging, good hand jams higher up, use the #3 camalot.
Z-Crack (5.10c) TRed, hard to get of the ground
Classic Crack (5.9) Sweet hand crack, too short
Heart Of Gold (5.10a) 4P mostly slab/face climbing on Duty Dome, fun route. Climbed as two twosome with Radek/Shirley and Martin. The 10a slab was sustained all the way.
Poison Ivy Crack (5.9) Fun little corner crack and a stem move out and left of the roof.

Took a gamble to avoid the bad weather everywhere else and it could not be better. Leavenworth is always fun, climbed with Jim the following:
Givler's Crack (2P, 5.8) Very nice route, wish was longer
Rare Earth (5.10a) Friction, no holds whatsoever
Fit 'N Trim (2P, 5.8+) Didn't feel like 5.8.
An unknown crack between Givler's Dome and Mastadon Roof was hard, had to aid it as my left shoe's toe box came apart ...
Feeling good and strong so are we off to Orbit on Snow Creek Wall on Sunday.

|Fun weekend of Leavenworth climbing to escape the rainy (in July???) Northwest forecast.|
Givler's Crack (2P, 5.8): Great route, but too short!
Rare Earth (5.10a): Friction (the F word) is not my thing ...
Fit 'N Trim (2P, 5.8+): Definitely easier than 5.8.
Something in between Givler's Dome and Mastadon Roof. Slightly overhanging crack. Can't find it in any book ... felt like 5.9?

|Great place to climb and I have barely scratched the surface. Mostly stuck to the Clamshell(?) area. I will definitely be coming back for more.|

|darinchadwick||Route Climbed: Careno crag, Givlers, 8mile (not eminem), Some big old rocks 'round there. Date Climbed: Mid to Late 90's, early 00's|
|I've got to look up my old guidebook and see what routes I've done. Some of the best granite around, lots of fun wandering to do. We once camped there for about a week, just cragging and keeping our toes cool in the river until we finally got a permit to go into the Enchantments.|
