Places to Go

Leavenworth, WA
-Drive up Icicle Creek Road and begin your hunt for a campsite at eight miles. There are
multiple campgrounds, but during the summer months, get there early because they fill up
fast!
-Huge selection of bouldering, sport, top, trad and alpine climbs. It would take a life
time to climb it all!
-Heat is a huge consideration come late July and August. Lots of exposed rock, so be weary
of afternoon roasts.
-Town has excellent amenities; beer gardens, restaurants, and a grocery store.
-Purchase a guide book if you’re climbing.
-Visit the ranger station in town for hikes (they are super helpful)!

Exit 32 and Exit 38
-Great climbing area for a day trip if you live locally.
-Soft ratings and tons of areas so get a guide book.
-Watch out for wet rock because the rainy season sticks around longer here.

White pass Ski Resort
-Great place for all levels, but particularly good for intermediate skiers with lots of
blue runs.
-The new expansion is excellent! Wide open terrain with fun tree runs, and the feeling of
solitude if you want it.
-Child care! One of the only resorts left in Washington that has child care. However, it is
only for kids two and up.
-They allow and are completely baby in backpack friendly! No judgements will be passed!

Marmot Pass, Olympics
-Great backpacking trip for babies on this ten mile hike in and out.
-Fairly persistent grade uphill so bring those trekking poles otherwise baby will kill your
back!
-Creek access for water filtration near primitive campsites.
-Popular weekend hike so get your ass in gear if you want a campsite.

Mt. Ellinor, Olympics
-Short but relentlessly steep hike. Just under three miles to the top, but it’ll feel much longer on the summer route.
-Two route options depending on season. Winter route has an awesome glissade so bring your
ice ax!
-Not much space at top for baby to roam around, so hang out on the false summit and watch
baby carefully.
