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.
On the far left side of the cliff is this deceptively easy looking slab/arete that provides one of the best pitches of the 'low angle' style at Index. Meander up ramps and cracks to the slab for 20' to the first bolt. There is a tree that can be slung along the way if desired. Once on the slab proper, clip bolts and climb classy, highly textured low angle rock past a couple of cruxes, one at the bottom and another higher up.
