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.
Awesome mixed line up the overhang left of One Hand Clapping. A #3 friend and perhaps a few other pieces for the start of One Hand will put your mind at ease for the spectacular pebble pulling above.
Climb one hand clapping until you are in the bulge handcrack. Look out left for some bolts...step around when possible, place a piece behind the "handrail" flake, then ape your way onto the superb face. Thin edges, pebbles and a variety of moves sees you through the tough sections...Amazing!
