Consider rock climbers: daring alternative types to some, in Leavenworth they’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, you’ll find yourself at Eightmile Campground. Over the road and through the woods leads you up to a rock climber’s paradise. That explains all the rock climbers there. Our Alt is a toast to them.
