Description Suggest change

The Great Northern Slab is where many climb their first time at Index. There are a lot of fun, moderate trad routes, mostly 2-3 pitches in length. When the sun is out, the routes are all in the sun.

If it is too hot, the relatively cool Inner & Side Walls, as well as Lookout Point, also have great moderate (5.9 and below) routes.

Getting There Suggest change

The trail from the parking lot leads straight to the Great Northern Slab (i.e. don't turn left or right, just go straight).
