I'm not sure why this isn't an access alert, maybe the locals don't want it to be (if so, let me know and I'll delete this post).

Index is pretty great.

The wcc is holding off on a big publicity push until a purchase can be negotiated (hopefully) but it made climbing.com...

Just remember to donate once there is a purchase effort.

Bump.
Remember, Index WA has some of washington's best cracks, hardest faces, and traditionally sandbagged ratings. It has a long history, including the FA of one of the first 5.13 crack in america. Many FA's by fred beckey.

This is also the most accessible crag to train for hard crack for all you seattle-ites. Pony up.

Awesome. I really hope to move back to the north-wet in a year or more. Nevada just doesn't do it for me sometimes.

Mid monday morning photo bump.


One of the routes threatened, Rogers Corner.


One of the no trespassing signs on the day Jen and I found 'em. Not sure if we were the first to see em or just the first to report them but the shock of sneaking out from work on a rare warm winter thursday and driving up to the best crag in the area only to find it closed is not something i would wish on anyone.

For those not in the loop the purchase is a block of land stretching from the inner wall (toxic shock, even steven) to the quarry including the entire great northern slab and lower town wall and such classic routes as Aires, Libra Crack, Rogers Corner, Breakfast of Champions, Marginal Karma, Dr Sniff and the Tuna Boaters, Snow White, Dwarf Tossing, Newest Industry, Model Worker, Upper 10%, Amandala, Iron Horse, Japanese Gardens, Trout Farm Massacre, City Park, Godzilla, Sloe Children, Death to Zeke, Thin Fingers and Tatoosh.

I would submit that the Lower Town Wall in particular has one of the greatest concentration of quality 10d-11d pitches of any crag in the country. If any one disagrees, I suggest we discuss after a few days of climbing there and drinking beers at the river.

The north wet is not that bad once you get used to chasing rain shadows. Its the bugs that get to you.

The Lower Town Wall is now owned by the Washington Climbers Coalition. Over 400 individual donors and a dozen climbing equipment suppliers and clubs have thus far donated $249,000 and we are still raising money for some long-overdue maintenance and basic area improvements.

Go to washingtonclimbers.org for more information.
