Access Issue: Donner/Truckee area 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/. The Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign, then purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs, in 2015.
This route tackles the steep overhang up some of the most unique moves and holds in Donner. All the holds are very large and positive, but due to the space between holds and how steep the line is it checks in at 5.11b. Climb up the easy face to a horizontal and reach up place a piece under the giant flake. Power out to the flake and over while campusing across the flake. Throw a heel and clip the bolt. Head out left to the arete and obvious crack and top out. Amazing line.
This route is located about 100ft to left of Karls Overhang on a steep short overhanging roof. From Karl's Overhang traverse the cliff line until you reach an overhang with a bolt halfway up the wall.
Mixed trad line. The bottom part of the route before the bolt is protected both in the horizontal right below the overhang and in the obvious ginormous flake. After the bolt you can protect the small crack at the top without any danger to hitting the ground. There are two bolts at the top with no rap rings? We left a bail biner through one of the anchor bolts to lower off (6/9/11). You can walk off by scrambling up and then to the right to get down.
