Access Issue: 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.
This extremely unique route is one of the most interesting routes in Donner. Start off the route with a brutal mantel on a large roof which is followed by thin face climbing. From here attack an overhanging pocketed face with brutally thin moves on slopers and pockets to the top.
This route is located about 100ft to the left of Childhood's End 5.10d and is one of the first routes you will see when getting to the wall through the second approach described on North Stars Wall.
7 bolts lead to a 2 bolted anchor. Rap off.
