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.
DescriptionThis short, deep chimney is one of the cleanest (not clean, it IS a chimney) chimneys I've ever climbed. By cleanest I mean the relatively small amount of crud left on clothing, in the eyes, net blood lost, etc.
Climb up from wherever you choose in the chimney, But climbing is shorter and less exposed deep in the chimney. There's also protection options in a crack system to the left. I topped out behind a moderate sized chockstone, though it was through a space that many probably will not fit.
LocationThe prominent deep chimney on the middle-right side of The Space Wall.
Walk off the top ( I didn't find a great way, and it took a while) either to the left or right.
