Description

The main wall of Snowshed is home to some of Donner Summit's finest traditional climbs and is one of the few true north-facing Summit crags. Many of the best routes leave from the infamous "Office" ledge, where you are bound to find a crowd (and maybe a partner) on a warm summer day.

Getting There

Park, walk straight towards the obvious wall for a few minutes.
