Not really, it was more of a technicality that all signatures were not there and the permit wasn't "officially" issued. The agreement was clear and path forward was clerical. It's all good :)

ahhh man!

It sure was muddy.. ;)

not a bad place, some cool looking rock fer sure, and as usual, all the cool looking rock was at least 20 ft off the ground.

I'll say, never thought to use off toes crack technique acquired in granite, here in a quarry

Never climbed on this kind of thing, nor expected to find fun.

Especially when I remember the flask...mmmmm!

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.

I have a stash of bolts and mussy hooks to contribute. My Fridays are also free to anyone who wants to climb and/or replace said anchors. I've already added a few mussy where ones didn't exist before.

For everyone who wants to keep Auburn open, CRAGS (the org that keeps it going) needs your help:

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!
