Description

The left side of the aptly named Universal Wall is a wide expanse of mostly beautifully solid rock overlaid with piles of choss and hollow flakes. There’s lots of good climbing along the base and a handful of multi-pitch lines. The rockfall potential is very serious here and anyone climbing up high will for sure be knocking rocks down, no matter how careful they are. Don’t climb under parties up on the wall! My friends and I dubbed this the Crumbowl Wall because of the constant rain of rocks whenever we were climbing here.

Getting There

Follow the trail up the main drainage from the northwest corner of Mary Jane Falls parking lot.
