Was out there yesterday (Friday) and a group of climbers, maybe 15, were looking like they were having fun on the lower wall. The trail is now improved from the lower area (Scale and Memorial walls) to the higher area (Wreckage Wall etc) Steps were added. So go out and enjoy. Need to improve some of the top anchors especially on the scale wall. When my back heals, I will go there and add some better bolts with Mussy hooks at the top.
WHY? For the time being, CRAGS’s permit to keep the quarry open is conditional and requires that CRAGS provide “volunteers” who are present to supervise, climb, remind people that the quarry closes at sundown, and report dangerous activity.
If you were planning on climbing at the quarry one of these weekends, please consider signing up as a volunteer for CRAGS. If we do not have volunteers like you, we will lose our permit to climb at Auburn!
HOW YOU CAN HELP: Please spread the word that we need help. If you already climb at Auburn anyway, being a volunteer is as simple as climbing and keeping an eye out, then emailing the coordinator after you get home. note – you can climb while you volunteer!
