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.
Upper left side of Blues Cliff (see beta photo). The usual approach is to rap in from the top. Hike the Upper Wall Trail and take the Mid Wall trail turnoff (first left). Look for a lookout vantage point just before the first stairs.
