Auburn Quarry Climbing Ban Nearly Lifted – Your Urgent Support Needed!

Auburn Quarry Climbing Ban Nearly Lifted – Your Urgent Support Needed!

Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento (CRAGS) and the Access Fund are excited to announce the successful negotiation of an agreement with California’s Auburn State Recreation Area to lift a 9-year ban on rock climbing at the Cave Valley Climbing Area (the “Auburn Quarry”). Although the agreement must be approved by the California Department of Parks and Recreation, CRAGS anticipates that approval is imminent. Climbing access is now contingent on CRAGS providing critical services in the area to offset climber impacts. CRAGS and the Access Fund are working to raise $9,520 to provide these services and restore climbing access early next month! Please visit www.accessfund.org/auburn to make a contribution--100% of your donation will support the climbing area.

The Auburn State Recreation Area is a large public park on the American River, 35 miles northeast of Sacramento.
