11 day trip with 6 full days of rain! I guess that’s just how it is in the Pacific Northwest. You win some and you lose some. Despite the poor weather, I have to say, Leavenworth is one of the raddest places in the USA to go bouldering.
My main goal of the trip was to try the Penrose Step… I unfortunately only had about 2 30 minute sessions on it where it was not wet/way too humid. I got really close but was not able to finish this gem of a line up. But, that’s what next time is for!
Here is a video of a nice mix of climbs from the trip climbed by Lizzy Ellison, Matt Fultz, and myself.

Cotton Pony Sit, V11 (Flash)
Tornado Arete, V12
