DescriptionThis south-facing wall is of typical Donner quality, very solid granite, and while the access is easy, the routes appear seldom done.
Access Notes 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/. In 2014, the Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign. The following year, it purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs.
Getting ThereFrom Reno, take I-80 west and park at the base of the obvious slab in a dirt pullout approx. 1 mile east of the summit. Follow an overgrown trail north along a seasonal creek till you are almost directly west of the slab, then cut over to the base.
