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. Note that the park's policy is that technical roped climbing is only permitted in the Cave Valley/Quarry area - outside the fenced private quarry at the back. Unroped climbing - aka bouldering or DWS - is allowed everywhere with a safe landing.
DescriptionLeftmost, and the easiest, route on Memorial Wall. Probably 5.6 on first ascent, but lost holds since that time, and the easiest choices of holds being loose on some moves, have made a bit harder.
Taking the risk of lost holds due to crumbling and not so great fall line into account, a solid 5.8 climber is recommended to lead this route.
