2014 nesting closure Details
Totem Pile and the climbs right of it are closed for nesting falcons, per a sign posted by The Access Fund and that I saw on 4/21/14. The falcons are there, please respect the closure.
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.
DescriptionStart by climbing into the pod. At the first bolt move out left onto the face, and make a hard move to gain the good right slanting rail and the second bolt. Climb up to the ledge and wander over to the wall and clip the 3rd bolt.
Move back slightly right and up to good hollow sounding holds. Continue up to a good resting point below the crux.
The crux involves rocking over onto a high mantle for the left foot and a reach to a bomber flake. Continue up the flake to the anchors.
