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.
Scramble up some easy ledges to a flake and clip the bolt (on Longlife?) if you want. Head right up a finger crack that morphs into a chimney. A little dirty but fun!
