Description

A huge wall sometimes called the quarry area by older climbers. Generally clean, dry, and exposed. The top of the wall ends near the base of the Mid Wall, providing several walk-off possibilities.

Prior to 1982, it had a huge roof near the top (with a bold A4 route out it), but in the winter of that year, the roof fell down, depositing the huge boulders below. Now, except for the huge chimney route on the very left end, the wall is reported to be quite solid.

The top of the wall is one of two places at Index used by BASE jumpers, the other being the central part of the Upper Town Wall.

Getting There

Either hike up from the Country, or from the Lower Town Wall.
