The Washington Climbers Coalition purchased the Lower Town Wall in 2010. The Lower Town Wall parcel includes 20 acres of spectacular climbing in the middle of a dense collection of the best crags and boulders in the state. This area has drawn climbers for fifty years. We are working on long range planning and infrastructure which we hope will support public access to climbing here forever.


In a nutshell:

  • The Washington Climbers Coalition is working with Washington State Parks to adopt a climbing management plan that will guide Parks’ management of the entire Index climbing area.
  • At the Lower Town Wall, we are making some improvements to the parking and trails.
  • We are working to install a toilet at the Lower Town Wall.
  • The Forest Service, the County, and other parties are moving ahead on a clean-up of the Gun Club property .
