This colorful and featured limestone rock lives up to it's name. The rock was ground down by some sort of mining, and now contains many features that are definately not natural. Provided that you get over that, some of the routes on this wall are quite fun!

Ranging in height from 40 feet to 70 feet, there are routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.11, most of them sustained. All routes are bolted, but if you enjoy cheating death, you can also lead many of the limestone routes using protection. Some of the rock is still quite loose, so double and triple check any and all placements.

Getting There 

Estimated time from the parking lot: 20 minutes.

From the entrance to the Auburn Cliffs Valley, this is the rock on your immediate left that looks like it's been devoured by a huge machine.

Start up a short crack with blocky holds just left of the 10c and right of M&M. From the crack go straight up through some rock with cool features but a little grungy to its own anchors. Great climbing!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
