The best crag in Washington, and one of the best granite crags in the USA! An amazing concentration of quality routes, especially from 5.9 upwards. Grades are stiff but protection is good. Most routes are trad, with a few sport routes scattered around. Coming from the UK, you'd want to be leading E1 or harder to get the most out of it. The ideal time to visit is a dry spell in the spring or autumn, but dry weather is much more reliable in the summer.

Approach the Lower Town Wall in 2 minutes from the car park at the west end of Index town. This car park is notorious for break-ins, and thefts have also been reported from bags left at the base of the crag.
