Description

Situated South of I-80, The Babylon Crag contains a handful of climbs ranging from moderate to one striking 5.12+ finger crack. Some of the granite is coarse like that found on the Black Wall, but is high quality. The North East face is steadily overhung and boasts a stunning, right arching finger crack called Babylon (5.12c), a good way of identifying that you are on the crag when coming out of the pines.

If you are looking to get away from the crowds at Donner, this is your spot.

Getting There

Park at PCT or connector trails at Boreal or the Donner Summit Rest Areas, then catch the mellow dirt PCT to just before the Green Dream Wall. Head NE up and over some smooth granite slabs marked by cairns. You'll hit an open forested drainage with an obvious trail heading more or less towards the crag which will be visible.
