Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details
Each year, Washington Climbers Coalition partners with WA State Parks and WA DFW to monitor the Index Town Walls for nesting raptors. When hiking or climbing outside this closure buffer, avoid disturbance, keep noise to a minimum, and use your best judgment to gauge and mitigate your impact.
The Country Area is often less crowded than the Main Wall, and tends to be warmer when the sun is out. But the lower parts, particularly on the right side gets shade earlier in the day than the Lower and Upper Walls. So on a sunny day, it is warmer in the morning, cooler in late afternoon.
