**4/22/18 - Please Do Not uSe Roto Wall OR BRUCE'S BOULDER UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**

Both Bruce's Boulder and Roto Wall are located on private property, and the property owner has requested that organized groups do not use the property.

Information for leaders

scheduling & permits

All our fee-based course field trips and seminars on U.S. Forest Service Land must have been scheduled through the lottery process for User Days as allocated as part of our use permit. Review our User Day Allocations. Here is a direct link to the results of the 2019 USFS Rock Lottery results for Leavenworth - the course-related trips listed in this document have priority for 2019 scheduling. Leaders should be prepared to show our permit to any rangers who ask. Leaders should also read and become familiar with the district's Outfitter's Pocket Guide

Here is a direct link to the results of the 2020 Internal Climbing and Scrambling Lottery for the Leavenworth area. The course-related trips listed in this document have priority for 2020 scheduling, but the user days associated with trips in USFS-managed areas (Icicle, Castle Rock), are not final until we receive our user day allocations from the USFS in late March 2020.

Mountaineers activities on U.S. Forest Service land near Leavenworth must meet the Forest Service group size standards. Rock climbing groups in the Icicle Canyon or Castle Rock should not exceed 15 (students and instructors) at any one crag. Please limit total group size on private land to 15 as well. 

Leaders, please identify the climbing area you plan to use for your trip in the summary section of your activity to ensure we don't have more than one group at the same area. 

Please use the Sam Hill (Leavenworth route/place if you plan to conduct your activity there. No Forest Service Permit needed, but we must file an application.

GROUP CAMP SITES

Please check the self serve Leavenworth Group Site From for availability and to indicate how many campers will be attending our activity. If your activity is the first to fill out the form for a specific weekend date, please consider helping other groups get group confirmation info.
