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.
DescriptionDelicate face climbing past the first 3 bolts then the climbing gets a bit easier but the bolts spread out a bit.
The crux is down low on the climb. I had to zig-zag quite a bit down low to find the holds to make it work out to be 5.10. Going directly from bolt to bolt is much harder than 5.10, but being patient and finding the holds unlocks the sequence.
There is quite a run from the 3rd bolt up to the 4th bolt that may give you an "anxiety attack", but keep your cool and trust that the climbing gets easier after bolt 3.
LocationLocated above Bearclaw and assault and Battery. Climb up 3rd class slabs to the black streaked wall above. Look for the bolts to the right of the black streak.
