DescriptionFacing west from the main lower area of Auburn Quarry, there's a wall left of Surf Tower that looks like a tilting vortex of stone. Caleb Hooten and friends have started putting up routes here as of 2014.

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.
