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.
DescriptionThin crack right off the ground (crux) leads to a second crack to the right with good jams and gear. Follow the crack to its end and head up to a short right facing corner. You can either set up a top rope off of the tree or walk off down and right.
The protection on the starting crack is a bit tricky. I used small brass offset to protect the crux move. Not a good 5.6 for new leaders.
