Consider rock climbers: daring alternative types to some, in Leavenworth theyâ€™re just folks. To hang with the folks, head west to the edge of town and turn left onto Icicle Road. A few miles more and another turn later, youâ€™ll find yourself at Eightmile Campground. Over the road and through the woods leads you up to a rock climberâ€™s paradise. That explains all the rock climbers there. Our Alt is a toast to them.
