Adapted from Summitpost.org:
Condorphamine Addiction is a high quality 7 pitch 5.10B slab climb put up by Leland Windham in the year 2000. The route follows a direct line up the 600 foot northeast face of the Condor Buttress, a large outcropping of granite in Icicle Creek Canyon offering excellent views into the Stuart Range. The climbing is very nice. This route sees a fair amount of traffic, so it is free of lichen and moss.

Access:

From Leavenworth, turn left on Icicle Creek Road driving about 9 miles to the turnoff for the Stuart Lake Trailhead (Bridge Creek Campground too). Don’t turn here. Drive another .2 miles and park in the first pullout on the left side of the road.

Walk about 50 feet to the north along the west side of the street until you see a climber’s path exiting into the woods to the west. Follow this path uphill past Bathtub Dome switch backing up the side of the hill. The trail gains approximately 1,500 feet to get to the base of the Condor Buttress. It took us 1 hour. Look for the largest formation with the obvious path of delichened rock on it.
