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.
DescriptionThis route ascends the featured slightly overhung section of Horseshoe canyon, and is the shortest route on the wall. It is the second bolted climb from the left.
Climb up a really technical start to a dyno move after the second bolt, afterwards the climbing is easier until an interesting move near the anchors. Stemming out to the right in the crux is cheating!
