Access Issue: Black Wall seasonal raptor closures Details
Mind nesting raptors that raise young on the Black Wall some years.
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 is an outstanding vertical handcrack, that leans slightly to the right. Scramble up an unprotected 5.0 ramp for 30' to the base of the crack. A couple fingers to tight hands moves leads into perfect hands glory for another 80'. Ample gear and abundant face holds. A striking line.
Located near the far right side of the Black wall. Left of Rated X but right of the lightning bolt roof. Hard to miss this perfect crack from the ground.
