There was this, but I think you missed the meeting:

Are there minutes or anything online to see what happened during the meeting? I just moved to Sac and I'd be stoked if they reopened the quarry for climbers.

Check out: http://www.yourcrags.org/

For the group (CRAGS) who is working to get Auburn opened up. As of now, it is one, if not #1, priority.

We have requested all documents from the BoRec and SRA and hope to have a path forward soon. If necessary, things will get "litigious" (is that even word?). Several lawyers sit on the board and I know we are all chomping at the bit to get access back. The Auburn Dam water Rights removal just gives us more fuel for the fire Sly

In the mean time, and as an alternative to the SRA, please email me and I will provide a free topo to DTSA (50 routes include Multipitch sport routes) that is within 100 miles of both Sacramento and SF. Its choss, but loveable choss that has a style of climbing unique to the area and offers a chance to hang your ass out in the air for some true MP action!

I can give an update:

Our website has temporarily moved to:

http://www.yourcrags.blogspot.com/

This is due to the unavailability of our webmaster while he is swamped with other things. I will manage and update the new website accordingly to either we decide to host a new/old domain name, or decide to keep on blogspot. I like Blogspot cause it is free :)

The Board met last Thursday and we unanimously approved the Draft ASRA Climbing Management Plan. We will be submitting to the SRA this week most likely and requesting a meeting with them. We will be presenting it with the full backing of the Auburn City Council, who unanimously passed a resolution to support reopening climbing in the SRA.

The Draft Interim Plan is our attempt to provide the SRA with a viable option of a climbing plan that protects SRA resources but allows climbing in the interim until the User Plan is finalized. Given the states current budget crunch, allowing climbing ironically enough REDUCES their cost since enforcement of the climbing ban becomes a non-issue. The Draft Plan is based off of Access Fund Literature and several California and out of state climbing plans that are considered "gold standards".

The Draft Plan proposes opening up all Lower Quarry Routes and Areas that are not currently fenced off due to the new Teichert Lease. This would open: Scale Wall, Memorial Wall, Horseshoe Canyon, and the Wreckage Wall, as well as open up new walls for development. That would mean almost 50 sport routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.12+ would be immediately available to the NorCal Climbing Population.

Other CRAGS initiatives are bring the Reel Rock Film Festival to Sacramento. Look for more info soon! Beer, food, raffle, all for damn near nothing. Last years event was a success and we hope to build on that bringing in more people to the organization.

Keep the faith NorCal Sport Climbers! We are working as best we can to get Auburn reopened. While the place will never be world class, given legitimate access, it will easily become NorCals premiere sport climbing easily!

A sneak peek of what we are all missing out on:

Wreckage Wall before a good soaking


Dave on Ticks Dig Me 5.10c - Wreckage Wall


Doniel on Caught Inside 5.10c - Surf Tower


Dave on Destructomatic 5.11b - Wreckage Wall


Yours truly sending Triathlon 5.12c - Wreckage Wall


Vince cruising one of the old school 10bs in Horseshoe


Dave on Human Oddity 5.12a - Horseshoe (my contender for #1 Sport Route in the Bay Area0


Vince sticking the crux of Confusion Tactics 5.12a - Wreckage Wall


Chamille TR'ing Local Yokel 5.8 - Wreckage Wall


Yours truly on Bionic Bitch Slap 5.11a - Wreckage Wall

Ok enough for now, you get the point. The scary thing about Auburn is the potential is barely scratched...

I am just part of the puzzle. Gordy, Brian P, Andrew, Collin, and others all put a lot of time and effort into the plan. Let's hope it pays off!

Are there any updates on the status of Auburn SRA? I am a climber from Sacramento; unfortunately, I spend most of my year out of state, seeing that I go to college in another state. However, I have always been interested in this issue and would like to know if anything else has happened since August.

Things are moving. The CRAGS chairman/executive director recently met with the part superintendent and the ASRA is definitely amenable to reopening climbing. Due to the multitude of government agencies involved, it's going to take a bit more time to get it open though.

How have things been progressing? the best info I could find on the web is that CRAGS is "waiting for info." Anything new?
