Access Issue: Raptors have left the quarry, all normal walls are open Details
Raptors sometimes nest at the quarry.The 2018 falcon family left their nest in the Twin Towers area in early July, leaving it open for humans to play on again.
Access Issue: The State Rec Area closes at dusk - 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 website at parks.ca.gov/?page_id=502 for current information. Note that the park's policy is that technical roped climbing is only permitted in the Cave Valley/Quarry area - outside the fenced private quarry at the back. Unroped climbing - aka bouldering or DWS - is allowed everywhere with a safe landing.
250 feet right of Wreckage Wall. Endurance climbing on good edges.
