What's good for the goose is good for the gander: if it's harder for characters to delve, if there are increasingly "hard" wall materials (where "hard" can be thought of as a combination of physical and magical properties, e.g., to prevent ethereal beings easy passage), it should be harder for pass-wall and wall-eaters (including possibly even the big boy "P") to pass through them.

Time to retcon Angband as a... quartz volcano, or something. "And thus did Morgoth descend upon the smouldering gemstone mountain, and he was wroth that something so 'ooh shiny' should have been left unclaimed by him for so long," etc.

Angband's other name is Thangorodrim, which means "Iron Hells", so maybe shift the rock names
Magma/Early levels: Limestone or something like that
Quartz/Mid levels: Granite
Granite/Deep levels: Iron Walls.

There should also be streamers of permanent rock thrown in (those vault walls have to come from somewhere.

I dimly remember early versions of Angband claimed that permanent walls were made out of titanium. I guess Morgoth has one hell of a smelting team; that stuff isn't exactly easy to refine and work.

My guess is that Morgoth's smelting team consists of Greater Hell Wyrms led by Itanghast.
