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.
Handlebar right is not the same line as the "the dyno"... the right line sit starts on two small edges below the handlebar jug, pull on with a tough move to the jug then a big left to a decent edge, from here set a right heel and go for the intermediate out right or do a big move to a jug up and right. Once established on this jug, use polished feet and a crimp out left to reach the top.
