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.
This is a great slab climb with your typical index knobs. P1, Climb a dirty ramp(5.7) to a bolted belay, or better yet take the first pitch of beetle bailey arch, much better and cleaner (10c). P2, Traverse way left, then up the knobby slab, some people put a 3" cam in a hole low down (10a). P3 I dont know if anyone does this, but it is a short pitch up an arch (9+).
