Description

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

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.

Any easy accessible top rope anchors on memorial wall? Or do you need to lead climb up to set them up? Apr 7, 2013

i would say this is a lead only wall, i suppose it is possible to get a TR for the 5.6 but its really not worth the effort. all of the TR goes on at the scale wall, but you should lead the anyways! if your going to TR please use your own biners and dont go through the chains to keep the wear down on them since this area has become pretty popular lately Apr 8, 2013
