Description Suggest change

This wall contains the shortest routes in the Auburn Cliffs area, but each route holds it's own. 5 Sport routes presently range from 5.6 to 5.11b, most in the middle.

This rock is named for Kirk Arens, a climber who once frequented the area, whose plaque once adorned the rock. The plaque has since been removed, but his legacy lives on.

The rock will be of a different type of limestone than many of the other cliffs, and somewhat resembles granite in feel. The climbing is primarily near vertical to vertical. Many of the easier routes are sustained, and make for excellent climbing once you've warmed up on the simpler routes of the scale wall across the way.

This wall sees shade in the afternoon, and is a great refuge from the blistering hot red rock of the scale wall.

Getting There Suggest change

Estimated time from the parking lot: 20 minutes.

From the entrance to the Auburn cliffs valley, this is the darker colored rock immediately to the right.
