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.
Great sport climb, starts with technical slab with thin layback 11-.This leads to a 10+ mantel which brings one to large ledge. Jugs lead to a bulge with a powerful crux 11+. A climber has fallen from near the top and slammed into the wall hard enough to crack a rib, so don't blow the final moves... Its all there just slightly committing if going for the onsight.
