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.
DescriptionTwo bouldery cruxes, one low and one guarding the chains define this climb. The low crux is both burly and technical while the upper one is burly and awkward.
The first crux will leave you feeling like Christ crucified and looking to make a big reach.
