|Just be sure that you don't get off the road too early. There are actually 3 boulders with cables coming off the top of them and it is the farthest one that has the trail at it. turning off early leads to a 2 hour-bushwacking approach from hell!|

|As of June 2013, the trail at the creek has a pretty substantial bridge/dam and does not require fording. There would have to be a sizable surge to knock it out. Don't expect to do any fording.|

|I was climbing at Falls Wall last weekend (June 2013). It was a windy day, and some rock was blown off of the top of the wall down. I'm sure this is a rare a occurrence, but I would recommend wearing a helmet here and just being mindful of the wind.|

|Is there any national forest camping near The Falls Wall?|

The simplest answer would be no.
That particular area is a complicated mix of National Forest, Wilderness, and private land. So it's best not to camp in that area.
There are paid camping options in Telluride and other regional USFS pay campgrounds, and then random scattered free camping opportunities that are hard to describe here, especially if you're planning on car camping.
The Town Park Campground is right in the town of Telluride and is pretty sweet. It's like $20 a night. It's a short drive or a couple mile hike to The Falls Walls from there.

|I would like to 2nd the recommendation to not get sucked into hiking too early as there are a few boulders with cables on them. Go all the way to the major switchback which is 1.5 miles from the pavement like the poster said, not 1.3 or 1.4. If you aren't on a nice trail from start to finish, you are off route.|
