Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>


A quality area bouldering area just outside of Truckee, CA.

Tends to be high-ball. Bring your pads.

Getting There 

Exit Donner Pass Road on I-80. At the 4-way stop, drive between the two gas stations. Drive 1/2 mile. Park near locked gate.

Walk into Donner Memorial State Park. Keep the pond on your left and the campground on your right.

After 5 minutes you will see Split Rock.

The GPS for the state park page points to the standard dirtbag free parking described in climbing guides.

But if you happen to be flush and want to support the state park with your use fees, drive straight in the front gate, and check the state park's website for current fees, hours and other info.
