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.
Climb the splitter cracks from the top of Pitch 1 on princely ambitions. The crux comes at about 50 feet just before a ledge at the base of a corner/chimney. This feature can be either climbed directly or liebacked. It is a little bit friskier to lie it back, you can't really reach the crack to place gear. Near the end of the lieback as it starts to get slopey, you may either discover a really cool trick to make the final move easy, or you may go for a good ride.
