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.
DescriptionThis beautiful dihedral is one of the few 5.8 splinter finger cracks at Donner Summit and follows a thin splinter finger crack on the arete and then traverses into the dihedral. Sustained and a bit tricky for the grade, but holds solid pro.
LocationThis is located to the right of Childhood's End 5.10d and starts the same as childhood's End. Scramble up 5th class to the flat ledge about 1/3 the way up the cliff. Instead of entering the dihedral follow 2 parrelel cracks on the right to the top of a huge ledge then follow the thin splinger finger crack on the arete to the top.
