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.
A very beautiful thin left leaning finger crack which then follows a vertical crack to a small ledge. Traverse the ledge to a bolt and follow the thin seam to another bolt. Now you can either go straight up through the bulge (12a) or traverse right along the original line and follow easy climbing to two bolts.
This route is just to the right of Nova Express. It is the thin crack that looks impossible to protect but you can find solid pro.
