Description

This is the most visited of the Campsite 7 crags, if one can apply such a description to an off-the-beaten-path area such as this. But it boasts a nice quality of granite and there are several large trees around the Southwest Face that provide shade for most of the day. Crag at the End of the Universe has several well-starred routes, both cracks and bolted face climbs, and the sharp crystals make for great purchase on foot holds and hand jams. You might want to tape up for the cracks – these crystals will take their pound of flesh in exchange for the great friction. All the routes finish atop the crag at bolted anchors and there is an easy walk off for descent: just head to the backside of the crag, scramble down a few feet, then turn right and walk down the hillside to the base of the climbs. Be sure to bring some extra slings for top-roping.

Getting There

The Crag at the End of the Universe is the easiest of the Campsite 7 crags to find. Although there is a thorough description of the original approach in Hidden Treasures, a new mountain biking and equestrian trail has been cut that takes one directly past this crag. Start at Yellow Post Campsite #7. There is an old logging road that starts on the east side of the campsite. Follow this south until you come to a fork in the road. Take the left fork and continue to the end of the logging road, at a clearing. From here you can follow the swath cut through the sagebrush to the left, eventually following the cairns down through the streambed until they lead to the crag. However, the new, much easier way is to head right into the clearing, finding the equestrian trail and taking it to the left. This is a well-built and well-maintained path that will take you right to the base of the crag. Allow 20 minutes of easy hiking from the campsite to the crag.
