Description 

These walls lie between the Lower Town Wall and the Inner Town Walls, mainly along the side of the canyon going up to the Inner Walls. The rock texture varies considerably, providing a lot of variety. Some areas are quite shady and cool, similar to the Inner Town Walls.

Getting There 

Start from the Lower Town Wall parking lot. Several of the walls are as close as the Lower Wall, while the furthest away, K-Cliff, is only about a 10-minute walk.

The start has a bouldery crux in which you move from an undercling to a sloper to a layback. This move is protected by a bolt. After the second bolt, move up to the thin crack on the "feathery" section. Follow the crack, clipping three more bolts, and then use stoppers and cams to 1.5". This section is steep and pumpy. It involves jams, laybacks, and face holds. The crack goes to the left of the roof, above which is a three-bolt, chained anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
