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/. In 2014, the Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign. The following year, it purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs.
This climb starts with bolted chickenhead climbing that is fun and fairly atypical of the Donner area. Gain the horizontal crack and place protection. The end is some balancey face climbing on gear.
At the beginning of the second section of the cliff band just after the alcove. Bolts that meet up with the obvious diagonal crack.
2-3 bolts and singles from fingers to 1". Two bolt anchor (no chains). Walk off is easy.
