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 is an incredibly fun climb. Start on cool slopey edges and jugs down low. Move into a neat crux then up and around a roof to a sweet slab move. Find the jugs and work into the beautiful golden dihedral. Exit onto steep blocky jugs and use good footwork to pull the final roof out to a small headwall and finally the anchors. Superb movement calling for a variety of techniques in a stunningly aesthetic location. Have fun!
