Description 

These are smaller walls than the Upper or Lower Wall, and they lie roughly in-between the two. The rock quality and features are similar to that at the Lower Wall.

Getting There 

Except for Winkie Dinkie, all can be reached via the trail that starts on the NE end of the Country. Winkie Dinkie can be reached either by hiking in from between K-Cliff and The Lip (in the Side Walls Area) or by climbing to the top of the Great Northern Slab or Princely Ambitions at the Lower Town Wall. The Middle Wall can also be reached by topping out on a Lower Town Wall route further right or by topping out on Winkie Dinkie.

Black Cat Bone 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Washington : Index : ... : The Blues Cliff
Start with a difficult crack bolder problem to the right of the obvious flake start to Twelve Gauge IQ. Climb part of that route and step over to a finger crack on the right face. Getting started in the crack is the crux. One can traverse left at the top into the sport climb Twelve Gauge IQ, or, I believe, head right to another anchor. I can't remember if this other anchor currently exists, however....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
