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.
Start the climb at the right side of the beautiful slab to lookers left of All American Hand Crack. The climb starts up the corner and then on a shallow slab makes moves out on to the face. 3 old style bolts are followed (these need to be replaced due to rust and questionable nature of the bolts) to more natural gear placements in cracks below a roof. A no hands mantle well out from the first bolt to continuous slab climbing is the crux.
