Description

The Donnie G is the first formation encountered upon arriving when hiking up the standard approach. It serves as a good starting point as it's fairly centrally located and it contains one of the areas finest moderates, the classic Whisker Biscuit. Also, the climbs here get sun nearly all-day making them a good choice on cooler days.

Getting There

Finding the Donnie G is easy. After the final stretch of the approach through the large well-spaced trees look for an obvious granite "stalactite" hanging about 25 ft. off the ground. This is the Arrowhead (5.11a). Immediately to the right lies Whisker Biscuit (5.9).
