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.
This is the white overhanging corner high above On Ramp. Climb On Ramp past the new anchors for Rat Ramp up towards the roof. Eventually you'll reach a slabby stance with a 2 bolt anchor and a fixed pin (about 40' up from new anchors on right). If rope drag is bad, belay at Rat Ramp anchors and then do a short additional pitch to the belay stance. From the Space Modulator belay, climb unprotected face up and right to the corner. Climb the exposed corner to an anchor underneath the roof. Lower to the belay and then do two raps to descend.
