Crux region of P1 (10b) of the Zipper.
The huge wall sitting above the town of Index visible from the road into town. Has routes both short and long, both aid and free, and both trad and sport. At about 30-min, it has a longer approach than the 2-min one to the Lower Wall, but well worth the hike.
Classic aid lines include Town Crier and Green Dragon. Great multipitch free routes include the Davis-Holland, Wildest Dreams, and Heaven's Gate. Also many 1-pitch routes at the base. The Cheeks area has routes that tend to stay dry in a rain and easy-to-set-up top ropes.

From the Lower Wall parking, follow the train tracks to the Country area. Walk to the far right of the clearing, near the start of GM (there may be a notice board up) and follow the obvious path uphill to the base of the central wall area.

An upper wall classic without the traffic you would expect from such a fun climb. With long corners, big roofs, tricky aid, and some free climbing, this 6 pitch route is a great warm up for Yosemite. It does get some runoff when the weather is wet. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
