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.
An upper wall classic without the traffic you would expect from such a fun climb. With long corners, big roofs, tricky aid, and some free climbing, this 6 pitch route is a great warm up for Yosemite. It does get some runoff when the weather is wet.
As you arrive at the wall after about 45min of hiking, look 30 to the left. Either aid up the thin line or climb 5.9+ just left of that. You will see a beautiful long corner about 60 up the wall, that is the second pitch!
