Description

These are the walls closest to town, essentially in front view when driving across the bridge into town. The rock quality and type are similar to that at the Lower Town Wall, but the area has a greater fraction of moderate routes.

Here, you can find steep cracks and corners, steep face, as well as low-angle crack and slabs. Knob aficionados may find happiness too. Approaches vary somewhat, but probably any crag here will involve at least 20-min of hiking.

Plenty of forest, and thus shade on a sunny day. The top of Lookout Point is an excellent picnic spot with views to Gunn, Baring, Index, and Persis.

Getting There

Park in town. Hike down the railroad tracks from town, heading towards the Upper Town Walls. About 200 yards down, on the right and in the middle of the curve, take the footbridge on the right. Hike up the trail and past the large boulder (roughly half-way point). At the T-junction, go left for Rattletale and right for the other walls. If you go right, the next turnoff on the right goes to Private Idaho and Hag Crag. For other crags, continue up and left to the headwall of the gully. At this point, go up and right for Lookout Point, and left for Duck Wall. At a moderate pace, it takes about 20-25 min to reach most of these walls.

To get to the top of Lookout Point, take one of the trails to the right side of either Private Idaho or Lookout Point, then follow the steep trail up the gully.
