This beautiful dihedral lies near the base of the gully on the right side of Snowshed. Unforgetable jams and stems up the clean crack are well protected. An intermediate belay can be set at the top of the dihedral before running it out a bit to the top of the rock, but if I remember right this isn't really necessary.
standard rack to 3"

Can step left to anchors of Molar Concentration if you are teaching n00bs how to climb and don't want communication issues (Showshed often windy).
One of the best easy routes at Donner. You might have to wait in line...

Fun crack - I did a mock lead on this a few years ago (2007) and then stopped (learning to) lead trad ...
Ticked this one of as my 2nd lead on gear though in 2009 and felt great. Until I got to the top that is because I didn't have a whole lot left to build my anchor with (didn't use the bolts at Molar concentration) but I made due.
Great crack for we n00bs to learn to lead in ...

Go to the very top of the route if at all possible. This involves pulling a small roof followed by a bigger crack to the top of snowshed wall. Use the tree up there to belay your second as there are no bolts and it may be too far to lower from the tree unless you have a 70m rope with your buddy standing on the big ledge to the right of the crack.
