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.
Walk right beneath "Firecracker" and "On Ramp" on a narrow brushy ledge until it stops in a gully. Start in the gully and climb up then out left on the face via knobs and crimps. Look for new-style bolts. This climb is sport bolted and sport protected. Bring a lot of draws and a 70m rope. This is one of the better "sport" routes on Black Wall, maybe the only one of its grade. It doesn't look good from below, but the climbing is clean and pretty fun. Descend via new chain anchors.
