Access Issue: Black Wall seasonal raptor closures Details
Mind nesting raptors that raise young on the Black Wall some years.
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.
Awesome route (when it's clean). Bouldery start, to right-ward traverse, past a fixed pin, finish on stellar left-leaning hand crack. Doesn't get much traffic, and might be pretty dirty. Ajax (5.11d?) is the splitter thin crack that heads straight up after the fixed pin.
Stranded in the middle of Black Wall, with a couple of other obscure but good routes. Between "One Hand Clapping" area and "Black September" area.
