These are smaller walls than the Upper or Lower Wall, and they lie roughly in-between the two. The rock quality and features are similar to that at the Lower Wall.

Getting There 

Except for Winkie Dinkie, all can be reached via the trail that starts on the NE end of the Country. Winkie Dinkie can be reached either by hiking in from between K-Cliff and The Lip (in the Side Walls Area) or by climbing to the top of the Great Northern Slab or Princely Ambitions at the Lower Town Wall. The Middle Wall can also be reached by topping out on a Lower Town Wall route further right or by topping out on Winkie Dinkie.

Climb the discontinuous bolted finger crack in the corner up to the large, blocky roof. Turn the roof via a boulder problem and continue up on steep jugs to the anchor. The route gets a .12b/c in books but is less difficult than others of the grade at Index simply because it's more straightforward. The corner and possibly the whole climb could potentially be led with gear...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
