Thanks to the hard work of the Washington Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund, an option has been secured for climbers to purchase the Lower Town Wall area at Index, WA. I’d expect an update to go online at the WCC site today or soon…

And in the meantime, here’s the message Matt Perkins sent out earlier to the Friends of Index Facebook group.

On Monday June 1 we actually received a signed “option” from the owner of the Lower Town Wall at Index. Yesterday, the Owner received the down payment and we recorded the option in Snohomish County property records. This document sets the purchase price and gives the Washington Climbers Coalition time to raise money. It also gives climbers the right to climb at Index Lower Town Wall in the mean time. That’s a lot better than a “no trespassing” sign, huh?

And, here’s the press release by the Access Fund, when the option was first secured.

Now, get ready to fundraise!
