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.
This formerly vegetated corner between Battered Sandwich and Instanbul is now clear of brush and ready to climb. Start in the corner. Lieback, stem, and chimney your way up the widening crack. There is an anchor at the platform where the crack ends (thank you to whoever installed this!). From the top of the crack, you can also continue by making a few moves right to the base of the flare of Battered Sandwich (Turkey Sandwich??). This adds some great climbing, a little spice, and a grade or two.
