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.
DescriptionClimb the bolted route on the extreme right of the Scale wall.
Climbing is simple and well protected, though there is still tons of loose rock on this route. You will feel like you're going to trigger a landslide!
Crux is in the slightly overhung section at the top, though the holds are still quite good.
