Access Issue: 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/. The Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign, then purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs, in 2015.
Description [Suggest Change]
This rock is found at the base of Schoolhouse rock, near the road. It can be easily top roped using existing bolts or lead as a practice trad route for beginners. It is basically just a clean granite hand/fist crack.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A few hexes or cams should protect this nicely. There are also 3 bolts at the top.
