Description 

With their slightly longer approaches and less impressive route density, the Inner Walls are quite often less crowded than the Main Wall and the Great Northern Slab. The routes tend to be nice all year as long as it isn't raining. (And even if it does, many of the routes dry out quite fast.) The Inner Walls are formed by the Canyon in between the Main Wall area and the Lower Lump, and so are best categorized by the West side (also the cave side) and the East side.

Getting There 

From the main trail that goes towards the Great Northern Slab, turn left onto another trail that winds its way up for quite a while. This approach is probably less than 15 minutes.

Even Steven 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  Washington : Index : ... : Toxic - Tang Area
The set of cracks on the face to the right of Toxic Shock heading straight up from the ledge. Fun moves, fairly consistent difficulty, and distinct reachy cruxes (at least for short people like myself) make this a great climb. Approach the area as for Toxic Shock and climb either of the starts for Toxic Shock to reach the ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
