Gone Coastal @ Auburn. Easy warm up.

Closes at dusk, and most parking areas are self-paid MORE INFO >>>


Start up the pillar on good rails. Big holds separated by big moves.


Farthest left on the Scale Wall.


3 bolts

Didn't notice any glaring issues with that first bolt. It may have been fixed by the time of this post. No pro needed.

It's a super short route. Despite the easy grade, the .7 to the right climbs just as easy and may be better for a new leader.

Super short route. Very muddy. Much better routes at that level can be found at the quarry.

WARNING: There is a wall of dirt just to the left of this route. Last month I saw two people deck in the same day, because they grabbed the dirt wall thinking it was stable rock (no injuries). Even at the best of times this route is dirty. Yes, it is a very easy, very short route. But make sure your newbie climbers are aware of the dirt/rock wall interface.

John: Take a deep breath. Taste that? Hopefully it's fresh *outdoor* air... Auburn isn't a gym. Yes, there is dirt and mud both at the top of climbs and invariably on the climbs, especially this year as a result the significant rainfall. This too shall pass my friend. Many of the routes will need a lot of cleaning over the next few months to clean off the dirt. This is a cyclic process that happens every year at Auburn, regardless of rainfall, but the amount of rainfall impacts how long the "mud and crud" persist. Well, at least that's my perspective from having developed the majority of the routes and having climbed there longer than 99.9% of any person(s) who actually takes the time to read this.

Added spring clips to the chains at the top (7.8.17). Let's see if they wear out as fast as the ones I left on the top of TFS a year ago ( which are clearly being used as TR anchors). :( Also snugged both anchor bolts, right was worse (hanger spinning) than left.
