Description

Green Phantom Rock sits almost directly below the old arching bridge at the top of the Donner Summit climbing areas. The cliff is not that tall but is excellent granite quality with great views of Donner Lake. There exist about 8 routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.10+, with other toprope possibilities. 3 of the routes are sport routes, while the rest are toproped. If you want to jump on some moderate face routes and don't have a lot of time, this is a good place to go.

Getting There

From the Donner Lake overview parking lot (found on the right just before the bridge going up the hill from Donner Lake), walk across the road and hike down underneath the old bridge to the top of the cliff. Walk right to access route anchors or walk left following an easy trail to skirt down and around to the base. There is a 3rd class way down from the top of the cliffs which puts you directly at the base of Yellow Jacket and Roccocater routes.
