Access Issue: Access Notes Details
The open climbing areas are right next to a dangerous active quarry, so regardless of what you read on the internets, respect whatever "closed" signs you find on your visit. CRAGS and the Access Fund are beginning new projects to help improve access to Cave Valley. You can communicate access issues directly at CRAGS’ Cave Valley page norcalcrags.org/crags/cavev….
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.
Scattered bouldering option within the old limestone quarry.
Getting There [Edit]
Same as the standard approach for the roped climbing.
