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 a couple of tricky moves right off the deck and then past 2 bolts to a good ledge/stance. Here the wall steepens and the climbing quality improves considerably requiring technical 5.10 climbing with far fewer holds to choose from. Hardest moves are just getting to and climbing past the 5th bolt onto the head wall then to the big undercling out right. Milk the upper underclings at the top of the headwall and prepare for the exciting mantle onto the porch!
LocationFurthest left on the wall. A small flat area dug out into the dirt slope and at the bottom of a large fallen slab marks the start.
