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.
DescriptionBreak it Out is a somewhat discontinuous, mostly dihedral crack system that keeps throwing liebacks, some thin crack and even a bit of the offwidth at you to keep you honest. Honestly, it is a pretty awkward lead and a bit of a head sketch at times because the knobby rock here seems a bit brittle and placements therefore can seem slightly suspect.
Nonetheless, it is fairly good climbing that'll get you nice and warmed up.
LocationOn the far left side of North Star Walls, the crack system just right of the bolted slab arete, Diamond in the Rough.
