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.
DescriptionCool route on the left end of the rock formation. Great for beginning leaders that want to explore low angle terrain and practice multi-pitching skills.
1.) Scramble from trail up to low angle crack with various rocks within it. Mellow climbing up a crack system which has a branch ~20' from the start. Go right into steepening terrain and widening crack. 5.5 crux through awkward bulge. Belay ~15' above.
2.) Choose adventure over slabs with cracks for protection. Went left of small tree onto face. Belayed from large platform above slab. 5.3
3.) Short pitch up slab to rock face and large ledge. Awesome flake terrain belay here.
LocationLeft of all major routes. Last crack system with steep terrain before it becomes seriously low angle.
Follow trail to the west then scramble up to the crack.
Walk off the summit.
