From the WA Climbers' Coalition:
There will be limited access to the Lower Town Wall on October 8 & 9.
Clearing work for the new vault toilet will begin. The first part of the trail will be widened (within the railroad right-of-way) into a short gravel road, which we need to install and service the toilet.
In addition- Some trees deemed hazardous will be removed at the base of the Lower Town Wall, especially around the Great Northern Slab, the Sonic Reducer/Terminal Preppie ledge, and Rogers Corner. A hired arborist determined we have nine “hazard trees” many of which are dead or decaying, which we identified for removal in a Critical Areas Report to the County. To improve future safety at the Lower Town Wall, we want to remove these trees now, before we turn our property over to Washington State Parks.
All other areas at Index will not be affected.
A thin, clean flake that starts as a wide, lower-angle layback but thins and steepens into a hand crack.
This is a good route to combine with the routes at Private Idaho and Them for a bunch of 5.9 climbing next to each other.
Located at the left side of the cliff. Look for a gully with a knotted hand line. Go up the gully and trend right to a big fir tree. The climb is in an overlap area with a steep white wall on the right (the Bobcat Cringe). A little to the left is a flared, left-facing chimney below a huge roof.
Rap with 1 rope.
Standard rack with a couple of 3" pieces and a bigger piece for the start. A #5 C4 works at the beginning or run it out a little and place a #4 higher.
