These are the walls closest to town. The rock quality and variety are similar to those at the Lower Town Wall and Lower Lump, but the area has a greater fraction of moderate routes. In other words, Lookout Point has nice cracks, corners, thin faces, slabs, knobs, and roofs. The top of Lookout Point is an excellent picnic spot.
Park in town. Hike down the railroad tracks from town, heading towards the Upper Town Walls. Near the start of the left bend in the tracks, take the footbridge on the right. Hike up the trail, past the large boulder (roughly half-way point). At the T-junction, go left for Rattletale and right for the other walls. If you go right, the next turnoff on the right goes to Private Idaho and Hag Crag. Continue up and left to the headwall of the gully. Go up and right for Lookout Point, and left for Duck Wall. At a moderate pace, it takes about 20-25 min to reach any of the walls.
