Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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.
