Description

This is the crag directly to the right of Private Idaho. To get there, walk about 3 minutes along a faint climbers trail from the base of Senior Citizens in Space.

Relatively few people visit Hag Crag, but there are some good slab routes on this cliff as well as low-angle cracks.

The base of the crag has some huge big-leaf maples, making it shady during summer. This makes it perfect for a busy summer day at Index.

Getting There

Approach like Private Idaho.
Park in town, walk to the tracks, and follow the train tracks left until you see a trail on the wall side of the tracks with a wooden bridge. Follow this trail to a crest, then go right (left goes to boulders). Reach a large boulder (Midnite), then uphill through some forest and talus for another 5 minutes to a T junction. Head right. Continue for 5-10 minutes, trending right to the base of Private Idaho. The trail traverses along the base of Private Idaho. Traverse to the end of this wall where there is the popular  Senior Citizens in Space corner crack. Keep going up and right to the next wall and you are there.

If you miss the turnoff to Private Idaho and instead end up traversing right along the base of Lookout Point (just above Private Idaho), then you will eventually reach a gully. Hag Crag is at the bottom of this gully, just to the right (or left, if you are going down).
