Description

Space Wall has some very cool long sport climbs on weathered granite. The routes are well-protected, moderately challenging and all high-quality. Besides one 5.9, the rest of the climbs are 10+ to 12a.

The five minute approach quickly brings you seclusion that the road-side rocks do not afford. The east-facing view gives you a nice overlook of Donner Lake.
Access Notes Details

Getting There

Park at the Peanut Gallery parking lot. The approach path starts about 20 feet left of the lot (if you were facing uphill). It begins with a steep climb up off the road (~10 ft) then traverses through Manzenita bushes uphill and to the right. The path comes across a stream-bed (will be dry in the later summer) and continues up and right, above the peanut gallery. Continue on this relatively flat path to the right until you spot a Cairn just to the right of a tree. Go around the right side of the tree atop a small cliff, and then downclimb a class 3 slab to reach the base.

The wall is also (barely!) visable from the Road Cut pullout.
