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.
An adventurous route to say the least. It is currently dirty and seldom climbed but should be cleaned up and climbed more often as it presents some adventurous climbing and a short wide section which is always good practice.
P1 (5.6): First pitch of Porno Book
P2 (Two Options) (5.9): The first option is a gear belay at the top of the gully under a roof with a right trending crack traverse to a bolt. I found this to be much harder than 5.9 and I down climbed to the second option at a rap station which then led up and to the right across a few bolts to the right side of a roof. Either option brings you to the same place. Keep trending right to a short crack, then left under a roof, and then up a steep double corner to a belay on a ledge.
P3 (5.8): Climb up the groove to the left of the belay and get into a wide flake which leads to an easy ramp to the top
The start is about 100' left of Black September in a book that starts off as an easy gully. This pitch ends in two options.
Single rack to 5" (4" is acceptable with a small runout in the wide crack), doubles to 3", runners are necessary.
