Lower Town Wall Rock Climbing
Just a few steps away from the parking lot, the Lower Wall is where most people will be on a nice day in the summer. There are easier routes on the Great Northern Slab as well as more difficult routes and aid routes on the Main Wall and The Country. The Lower Wall is generally very nice when it is sunny. The trees provide shade for the lower portions of routes and always for the belayer.
Once you cross the train tracks, go a little left and find the trail that heads up towards the wall. The part of the trail that turns right stays along the base of the Lower Wall.

Undercling right and power over the bolt-protected roof (5.10 if you do it right), then balance up to a short crack/flake. Place a small wired if you want, or run it out to clip the first bolt of a fantastic three-bolt crimping sequence on matchstick to...[more] Browse More Classics in WA

Climbing Access at the Lower Town Wall and some adjacent areas is currently imperiled by potential mining/development operations. Negotiations are currently underway between the owner(s) and the appropriate entities (Access Fund, Washington Climbers Coalition). If you enjoy climbing at the Town Walls, please watch for more info. When the chance presents itself, consider DONATING to this worthy cause. In the meantime, please respect any potential closures or restrictions that may or may not affect climbing at the Town Walls.
