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.
DescriptionThis is the bolted second pitch of or extension to All American Hand Crack. It goes straight up the arete past three bolts to a two bolt anchor at the top. Run it out from the anchor at the top of All American Hand Crack to the ledge. Step up on a block and clip the first bolt, then climb straight up the arete to anchor at the top (Now properly Equiped with Rings).
You can also climb to the top and finish the pitch from both All American Hand Crack and the corner to the left of the arete.
