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.
DescriptionThe first bolt is shared with Superslide. Clip it and go up and right. Delicate slab climbing past the first 4 bolts, then you get a bit of a break heading to the 5th bolt, which is a little ways up and to the right. Past two more bolts on a steeper face, but good "holds" are there. After the last bolt you can either run it out to the top, or you can get in a few pieces in the dirty corner to the left which I recommend.
Be careful on the run to the 5th bolt although it is easier climbing then below it is a bit of a run.
The climbing stays pretty thin and sustained throughout the climb.
You will also need some gear to set up an anchor up top to belay your second up.
LocationRight of Jellyroll look for the two slab climbs that share the first bolt. This one is the line that goes right, not left.
