Access Issue: 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.
Start up a short crack with blocky holds just left of the 10c and right of M&M. From the crack go straight up through some rock with cool features but a little grungy to its own anchors. Great climbing!
