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.
Start in the right side of the wall. Pull a couple of 5.9 moves to reach a quick rest at the first bolt. Enter into a short but stout sequence to a knob followed by some good ol' index'ing. Follow the crack and finish up on some easy slab.
Follow the trail up hill from With Man Gone Will There Be Hope For Gorilla. It is the obvious leaning crack on the bulge at the top of the hill. A top rope can be set from the cricket (5.7 around the corner).
