Access Issue: 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/. 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.
Description [Suggest Change]
Short, but maybe my favorite route at Snowshed. Well spaced fists and hands in pods, then a respite of jugs to a cave. Plug some stuff into the roof, get the feet high, and make a blind(ish) reach right to escape. Finish by stepping back left and heading up to the chains...Fun, fun, fun!!!!
Location [Suggest Change]
You can just barely see the blocky top of this route in Carville's "East Face" topo that shows Sanitation Crack, Pump Lust, etc. (p. 48). It's up that same gully on the left wall.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Nothing too big necessary. Small cams for the roof are helpful. Two bolts with chains at the top (which are easy to get to from above for a toprope, if you're so inclined).
