3. East Face Main

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

Description

Home of the classic cracks Farewell to Arms and Nova Express, as well as the heady but excellent entry to the Snowshed arête series, Little Feat. There are a number of other less frequently repeated face climbs as well. The east face goes into the shade around midday and is a nice, cool place to climb on a hot summer evening.

Getting There

See approach for Snowshed east. The east face is the largest wall on this side, just above the Cannibals Gully and below the Brain Block.
