Access Issue: Donner/Truckee area 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/. The Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign, then purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs, in 2015.
A nice cruise up a well-featured mini-buttress. Start at the toe of the face on the left of the formation. gaining a small sloping ledge a few feet off the ground. Continue up and slightly right, following intermittent, flaring cracks to a steep step (crux). Friction and tension are your friends here; a few more moves and the angle eases. Finish at the anchors shared with "Fine Line."
The route starts 25' to the left of "Fine Line" on a blunt areté. Begin where a shallow, fractured, flaring crack system ascends up and and slightly right.
