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 slab route starts near the far right side of the blues cliff. The crux comes at the last two bolts on some slippery holds, but there are some hard moves lower down as well. Luckily you get a good rest before the crux. The top is wet occasionally.
This route ends at two obvious chains hanging on the under side of a giant roof. It is just left of an obvious, bolted, left-facing corner climb called Color of Pain.
