Over the past ten years the Truckee Donner Land Trust has worked diligently with the property owner on the purchase of Black Wall. Black Wall has some of the most spectacular climbing available at Donner Summit. This purchase is critical to climbers because it ensures access for many moons to come. The Truckee Donner Land Trust has partnered with the Access Fund to begin trail building this summer and we need your help! There will be two access points along Old Highway 40 -- a south trail and north trail. The trail will form a loop with a connecting trail along the base of Black Wall -- no more scant climber's trails and bush-whacking! The Truckee Donner Land Trust also owns a parcel north of this parcel and the trail will connect to that parcel as well. The trail will serve the climbing and hiking communities.
There are five opportunities to move "mountains" (aka rocks). Please add yourself to the "Interest List" above on this web page AND Sign up through the Access Fund link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/black-wall-climbing-conservation-initiative-tickets-46624827113
. The reason for this sign up is to give the Access Fund's Conservation Team (Carolyn and Allen) an idea of the number of volunteers. It also gives them a number to call if the volunteer day is cancelled due to weather.
If you have any questions, you can call me (Samaara) at (530) 414-4578. I will be at each event except June 23rd.
No place to stay? No problem. You can crash on my floor IF you volunteer. I'll even make you a smoothie for breakfast! Maximum 2 peeps. Must love dogs.
Section and event leaders -- get a team together for one of the days and win prizes! Mountain Ascent Association will be giving away our super cool swanky new t-shirts to anyone who volunteers. The section leader or event leader that amasses the largest number of volunteers will win a BIG prize.
