2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>


This fully bolted climb is a good addition to the rest of the routes at the country. Probably soft for 5.11c. It is a one move wonder with a weird mantel move.


This sport route starts just right of the large test tunnel, and left of cunning stunt.

can be climbed fairly comfortably with gear (if a 25 foot 5.9'ish runout above the crux to the anchors seems comfortable).

awesome route.

Typical "The Country" type climbing with cruxes followed by rests after each. Well placed bolts protect each crux, with one short section being the true crux. Originally led as a pure trad line, it's now almost exclusively led as a sport climb... by lots of people.

One of the easier 5.11c's at Index and a good climb to get on to inch into the grade.

The sloping ramp/mantle crux is hard, but much more manageable than Wham. Could see why there'd be an argument for calling it 5.11b... fun though.

Great route but if wham is 11c this can't be harder than 11b
