Description Suggest change

This is the area left of and generally underneath Davis Holland, comprising a half dozen or so excellent bolted face climbs. The ultra-technical, near-vertical style of climbing at the Sport Wall has largely fallen out of vogue in modern times in favor of steeper, more athletic climbs. However, in many ways these routes are much more demanding than their steeper brethren and the relatively moderate grades, again with respect to modern standards, will test the mettle of all but the most masterful granite climbers.

As of February, 2020,  every established route at this crag has brand new hardware thanks to a monumental effort by Ben Gilkison. The routes at Sport Wall represent, as is to be expected at Index, the zenith of technical granite sport climbing and deserve to be enjoyed by anyone up to the challenge.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for the main upper wall. Turn left at the wall. The first route is just past Davis Holland and is called Child's Play.
