Auburn Rock Quarry

Hiking for three hours, only to find your actual location on the return trip is frustrating, but only seeing an somewhat abandoned quarry in real life… worth it.

The Auburn Quarry is located just off of HWY 49 in Auburn, California. A former rock quarry, it is now a haven for rock climbing. Though I’m not exactly sure how tall the main climbing section it, it does seem to be one of the main rock climbing areas around. An awesome treat if you’ve never seen something like this is real life.

Being here during the Fall is quite a taxation on the senses. Color is everywhere, and made even more vibrant by the cool gray rocks.
