Description 

With their slightly longer approaches and less impressive route density, the Inner Walls are quite often less crowded than the Main Wall and the Great Northern Slab. The routes tend to be nice all year as long as it isn't raining. (And even if it does, many of the routes dry out quite fast.) The Inner Walls are formed by the Canyon in between the Main Wall area and the Lower Lump, and so are best categorized by the West side and the East side.


Getting There 

From the main trail that goes towards the Great Northern Slab, turn left onto another trail that winds its way up for quite a while. This approach is probably less than 15 minutes.

Behind the Eight Ball 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  WA : Index : ... : Notch, cave side (SW)
A splitter wide crack, a rarity for Index. With its locker fist jams, a few offwidthy moves, and a juggy lieback,this thing would be 4 stars if it were not for the dirty start and finish. The meat of the route is clean. Beware of the decompossing 2nd tree at the start we tried to kick it down on rappel and where unsuccessful, it would not be safe for the leader to pull on this. A 60m just makes the ground for the rappel. There is no webbing on the tree as of 6-27-08 so it would be nice if th...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
