Description 

This is the northern section of the western slope of Upper Devils Canyon, as specified in Marty Karabin's guides. Several easier to moderate routes are here and the area seems to be popular with climbers. This includes everything from Screaming Demons (5.11a) north to Free Booty (5.9)


Getting There 

Approach as described for Upper Devils Canyon. The main trail heads from the power tower parking area to the rim and then down through rocks north of this section. Continue on the trail and the Universe Wall is the first climb-worthy rock you run into.

Does anyone know info on the climb between The Throne and Universe Wall? It's a really nice looking bolted line going over a series of 3 or 4 bulges with a crux maybe at the second to last bulge??

Also... There is a brand spankin' new, fantastic bolted line just left of Moon Line on the Universe Wall. It felt like 9+ or 10- depending how you accomplish the crux before the 3rd bolt. I must say, this is the best sport line I have climbed in the area. It's 6 bolts to a chain anchor. Get on it!! I will post it up with pictures, but if you know the name, FA, bolter, etc please let me know so I can update the info.

Thanks!
