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/. 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.
A left facing hand crack formed from a slightly separated block marks the lower half of the route. Beginning with a wide hands roof with great feet, curve around the roof up the hand crack until gaining the top of the block. From here a bit of unprotected face climbing leads to protection and broken cracks to the anchors.
On the South face of the formation, the start is just under the golden face of a very large block.
