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.
DescriptionSimilar to Therapy Session but a bit harder and longer. Bouldery crux getting to the first bolt (stick clipped). As you climb past the bolt use the undercling pocket where a metal pipe was and climb to the jugs out left. A couple of cool 5.10 sections dot the middle of the climb. Then a bit of an endurance crux at the end finishing with another exciting mantle onto the patio just before the anchors.
LocationLocated to the right of Therapy Session. Start to the right of the vertical rock rib that extends down to the ground.
