Anyone know if the cliffs around Donner Summit will be climbable in the near future? How wet will they be from melting snow? I would like to get out to the Black Wall, but have never been before.

Drove through a few days ago, wet snow. You might call one of the mountain shops in Truckee, they will know specifics. And it has not stopped snowing. Yet.

Take a look at a web cam for the summit. There is 20'+ of snow at the base of the Black Wall....

Most climbs are dry. You'll need to post hole through snow to get to the base though.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
