Description

Facing 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.

Getting There

As you walk into the quarry, pass these landmarks on your right: the CRAGS wooden welcome sign, the short Memorial Wall, the port-a-potty, and the lone buttress of Surf Tower. This wall is on the same level as all of these.

Just finished Agree to Disagree. I think it's 5.9 but I'd like to get someone elses opinion. It's left of Surf Tower about 50'. It's 5 bolts to a two bolt belay ledge. A 60m rope is plenty to lower off the bolts. Give it a shot this weekend and tell me what you think. It's still a little dirty and has potential for rock fall so be careful.
