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.
Yellow Jacket is found about in the middle of the cliff and is the quite obvious smooth face starting about 15' off the ground. The three bolts are easily visible. It is not the larger smooth face seen further left which has 3 routes (5.8,9, and 10) which are toprope only. Clipping the first bolt requires care and getting to and clipping the third bolt is definitely the crux. A very fun route!
