Access Issue: Donner/Truckee area Details
CRAGS and the Access Fund are beginning new projects to help improve access to Donner Summit. You can communicate access issues directly at CRAGS’ Donner Summit page norcalcrags.org/crags/donner/. The Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign, then purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs, in 2015.
This secluded crag holds a hand full of classics, but doesn't see much traffic, despite easy access. There are a number of excellent bolted routes and some quality trad routes as well. A couple of the best cracks (Break It Out, Black Magic) have a tendency to be vegetated due lack of traffic...give them a burn and keep them clean!
