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.
DescriptionIf you have an actual name, FA, and rating info for this climb please let me know and I will update the info here. There is already an unknown in the area.
Three bolts up the face to the right of Two Bashie Crack. Pretty good climbing on small crimpy holds down, then a few slab moves up top. Crux seemed to be between the first and second bolt with a long reach and some slippery feet. Getting to the 3rd bolt is easier than I thought it was going to be, and the slab up past the 3rd bolts was thin but manageable.
Then continue up easier climbing to the top and set up an anchor using some gear. You may want to place a piece or two to protect the upper part of this climb also.
Overall a pretty fun climb. It would be nice to have some chains up though.
LocationWalk the base of Grouse Slab, at Bearclaw there is a trail heading up and left to get to The Slash area. Don't take this trail. Stay right and continue walking the base of the slab. Next you will pass a steep wall with a 4 bolt 12a and another set of TR anchors. This climb is on the next slab you will come to after these 12's. Look for the bolts to the right of a thin crack with two bashies in it.
