Lower Lump Area Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Right side of The Wart
Region left of the Lower Town Wall, past the trail to the Inner Walls. Near to, and facing, the road and tracks.
The area has tons of potential, with varied terrain from slab to roof. The area already has a fair number of moderate routes, and the approach is as short as that for the Lower Town Wall.
You can park at the next turnout past the LTW main parking lot (i.e., further west), or walk west down the tracks from the LTW. Less than 10-min approach either way.
Climbing Season For the Index area.

Named after a local legend that against all odds is still on the sunny side of the grass. This is an AWESOME sport climb that follows a left leaning fault system all the way up the wall with killer views and great exposure. -Pitch 1 5.8+ (65) Shares the same first bolt as Finger My Slot as it traverses right to the sloping ledge. From the slopey ledge head straight up to the anchors.-Pitch 2 5.10 (60) Starts with a technical sequence before transitioning to juggey fun.-Pitch 3 5.10 (115) ...[more] Browse More Classics in Washington

The reason for the division of areas is to easily accommodate the routes that will be added. The Lower Lump has a lot more routes listed in the Sky Valley guidebook, with only a few of them here.
I had thought that the routes would get added a little more quickly. But eventually, MP should catch up to and surpass the number of LL routes in the Sky Valley guide. (And it is a bit of a hassle to divide up an area after it has a lot of routes.)
The division is roughly the same as that in the guidebook. What makes the present division counterintuitive?
