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.
Traverse the face along the left side of Bar Rock around the corner if your looking at the sport climbs. There is a large fig tree that sometimes blocks the base of this wall. Thin edges over a rocky landing. Start on the right side of the wall near the arete and pull on and traverse left over a small pit till you reach a ledge where you can stand and take your hands off the wall.
