|Really didn't enjoy this wall, every route is terribly dirty. It has some moderately rated climbs for beginners but even for that there are way better places to learn than this wall coated in dirt and apoxy.|

|Just to be clear, there is not a single route on the Scale Wall with any epoxy. As for the dirt, it is a Quarry and you are climbing there in the winter which will be its "dirtiest" time. I do agree and will say though the Scale Wall is a face that does get a solid coating of dirt every winter due to how it sheds water / mud from the top of the cliff during rain. Come back in late spring through fall for cleaner climbing on this wall.|

|I would highly recommend wearing a helmet when climbing/belaying at Scale Wall. We have witnessed loose blocks falling out from this wall more than once, some of them as big as 1-liter Nalgene bottles. And please note that the rocks at the top of the cliff can be easily dislodged and roll off the wall too. I would really recommend wearing helmets at this particular wall.|

November, 2016. Lots of chopped bolts and chopped anchors here. Some of the routes can't be climbed because of it.
Also, lots of rock coming loose and falling. A microwave-sized block came off the wall and came about 2 feet from hitting someone.
Also, people walking around up top for some reason, kicking off rocks and debris.
Not an enjoyable place to climb. I've been here a couple of times and it's just getting ridiculous how bad the climbing is.
