1. Upper Slabs

California > Lake Tahoe > I-80 Corridor > Donner Summit > Snowshed Wall > E Face

Description

North facing series of broken slabs perched atop the other Snowshed east walls. Home to a handful of trad lines that are less frequently trafficked than the classic cracks below.

Getting There

Approach as for Snowshed east, but continue left on trails up the hill instead of walking up to the other east face walls.
