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.
DescriptionOne of the best lines I did at the crag. Fun and pleasant, mostly solid and gymnastic. I think I must have pulled 5 heel hooks around the corners.
This line is at the left side of the right-most feature of Snowshed Wall. This is in the shade in the attached photo, just left of the square face of that hold the obvious O.W. named 'Hairshirt.'
Climb up on solid rock on a crack (not too hard) to an engaging face- flag, stem, and hook your way up past multiple cruxes to reach the anchor. Very fun, and mostly good holds and good rests. Height may be a factor, as I found most of the critical holds just within my reach without much strain. Some one 5'6" or below will have to work harder.
