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.
DescriptionGood climb. This line starts up by Peter Principal, a ways left of Ariel and Devaluation Direct. Start up into a hole in the wall. Work up to and into a bomb-bay squeeze chimney, which is climbed and protected via some finger cracks in the back of it. Step out and to the climber's right as the climbing gets harder. There are crux feet and right-hand side-pulls to be had. Finish the line up on jams and locks with good feet to the top.
Formerly, the top-anchor or TR can be set with a direction at the top of the crack, then stepping to climber's left up top to a set of bolts/chains. However, a retro-bolt anchor has been placed.
