Description 

An unsung classic for Donner Summit....climb through blocky sections to a nice hand crack. Take a rest, plug a few pieces, and gun the airy roof. Finish up crack to right with new anchors.


Location 

Up in the West gully of Snowshed, on the left side. Just right of the large chimney system, and left of Turoid Roof (5.12+?).


Protection 

Gear to 3", chain(?) anchors.

Super awesome climb! The new book has it at 5.10d, I think 11a is fair but who cares... tricky moves to mantle over the roof (which for me was harder than pulling the roof itself). Possible to place a piece overhead to protect while locked off, but strenuous and blocks that fingerlock for the mantle move... better to go for it if you're up for it, I suppose.

Absolutely stellar. The exposure is 5 stars alone, and the many challenging moves are excellent to say the least. Wow. 11a is probably fair given the "10d, errr 11b circuit" Donner standard ;-)
