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.
DescriptionClimb the largest continuous crack on the far left side of the north face of the Snowshed wall. The crux is the first ten feet, and after that the climbing is simpler until a commiting move on the top of the route to get on the top slab. There is a shortcut that bypasses the crux by climbing the ledge on the left up to the crack, this route is called Split Pea (5.8).
Rappell off the anchors to Karl's Gym (5.10d) which is found by wandering down and left on the slab on top of the route.
