DescriptionThis is another fine addition to the growing number of cleanedsport walls at Auburn. You will find slabs, aretes, funkyfeatures and overhangs in this 50 foot wall. Someday there mayeven be some second pitches above the newly developed lowersection. There are currently 11 climbs of very varieddifficulty, from 5.7 - 5.12, with a few projects that are harderthan that.
There is a large chossy bulge in the middle of The Wreckage Wall,and this rock sits on both sides of that bulge, with a routegoing directly through the middle just for good measure.
This wall cooks in the sun on a warm summer afternoon, but whenit's not 110 degrees on the rock, the climbing is quite pleasant.All routes lower off of top anchors.

Most of Auburn SRA is open from 7 am to sunset. Leave early enough to be off the trails before dusk. Most parking requires self registration fees in cash envelopes (or annual state park passes), and is enthusiastically enforced.
