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+).


bolts, 3" piece optional


The first pitch (5.7) is pretty much unclimbable as far as I could tell. Beetle Bailey is much cleaner but still very mossy. The lower portion of the crag deserves a much needed cleaning. Jul 14, 2018

Is this on anyone’s cleaning list? Perhaps it’s already been cleaned? My guess is It would be a great readdition to Index. Nov 22, 2018

We've talked about leaving cleaning tools at various lessor-traveled places at Index, and this would indeed be a great section of cliff to reclean. I haven't heard of anyone working on it. Nov 23, 2018

I've held off on cleaning this area because I believe everything left of the wart may still be on private property? Would definitely like to know if I'm wrong though. Nov 23, 2018

I don't know where the Forks of the Sky State Park line is, but folks had been cleaning lines at the LTW for decades while it was still on private land. So, even if this route is on private land, I don't think any recleaning activity here would lead to any complaints. Nov 24, 2018
