Description

Two old towers used back in the day when the lower quarry was still operational. I was on my way to the quarry when i noticed a few holds on the overhanging wall. On closer inspection I found a few bolts and two anchors attached to the top of the tower. Plus a rope hanging from the nearby shorter tower. Got me wondering on who did this? Looks really sick and worth a try!

Anybody who has information on this please tell. :)

At the Auburn State Park's administration's request, CRAGS removed artificial holds and bolts from this historic structure during the April 1st, 2017 Adopt-a-Crag (not a joke despite the date), as shared in this FB post. Apr 3, 2017

It looked like new bolts. Plus the holds looked moderately used. I've checked this tower out before and a month ago I remember not seeing any bolts. Mar 10, 2014

Did you notice whether that's old or new hardware on the towers? Mar 10, 2014
