Access Issue: Donner/Truckee area 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.
This beautiful dihedral lies near the base of the gully on the right side of Snowshed. Unforgetable jams and stems up the clean crack are well protected. An intermediate belay can be set at the top of the dihedral before running it out a bit to the top of the rock, but if I remember right this isn't really necessary.
