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.
Climbs through a series of horizontal cracks on vertical to slabby terrain. Nice balancey climb with a variety of small features: mono, undercling, sloper and crimps. Probably tricky to protect on lead. May be missing fixed pin.
Look for series of horizontal cracks left of the slabby arete on Grandeur buttress across from Toxic Shock. I climbed Corner Flash and set a toprope with gear.
