Auburn State Recreation Area is now open seven days a week to technical climbing! The area still closes to all activity at dusk, so be sure to leave enough time to return to your car during daylight hours.
CRAGS -- the Sacramento area local Access Fund affiliate -- and the California State Parks worked together through a pilot program of limited access in the popular Auburn Quarry. Its success has led to Auburn being full opened to roped climbing.
Two old towers used back in the day when the lower quarry was still operational. I was on my way to the quarry when i noticed a few holds on the overhanging wall. On closer inspection I found a few bolts and two anchors attached to the top of the tower. Plus a rope hanging from the nearby shorter tower. Got me wondering on who did this? Looks really sick and worth a try!
Anybody who has information on this please tell. :)
Walk uphill toward the quarry. The two towers will be on your left.
