Description

The left side of the aptly named Universal Wall is 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.

It's worth repeating:

The danger factor cannot be overemphasized for this place. When you climb, rocks fall, when it rains, rocks fall, and when the sun shines, rocks fall. At least 1 helmet should be worn, and that goes for your dog at the base too. Climbing within 200 feet of a party above you (seriously) is a death sentence, and if anyone were working on routes from high on the wall they could easily trundle something that would could fly and bounce 150 yards or more in 3 directions. This is not a good place to bring a pack of kids or group of people not on their toes.

Bad falls have happened here and seeing rock come flying off the top of the cliff from 100's of feet up is a common occurrence. Be prepared, or be elsewhere. Aug 5, 2017
