DescriptionCurrently containing one route, this 80 foot cliff contains excellent climbing potential. Firstly, it's over 150 feet long, and only the first 10 feet have been developed. Secondly, the rock is mostly vertical, and should contain some excellent vertical routes that will run the height of the cliff.
This rock will have morning sun and afternoon shade.
Rappelling/lowering is the only option off the current route, though future routes will have a place to walk off.
Closes at dusk, and most parking areas are self-paid Details
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. Check the Auburn State Recreation Area parks.ca.gov/?page_id=502 website for current information.
