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.
Description [Suggest Change]
Old-school, very sporty, thin slab climb. Be comfortable with 10-15' runs between bolts on a 75-80 degree slab featuring thins edges, scoops and crimps. Easy to escape left to Insidious Crack pretty much at any time if uncomfortable with the somewhat committing thin slabs moves, but true line stays well right of crack at all times. Possible to TR after leading Insidious Crack and travesing right to anchor.

Three bolt route to the right of Insidious Crack.

Three-bolts, two-bolt anchor on top.
