Quick snowshoe outing with the GF. Encountered roughly 20 other people and about the same number of dogs enjoying the very warm temps. and good conditions. Didn't see any fresh tracks in what looked to be fine Sierra corn. :(

davis13NW Ridge from ASI parking lot  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2006


Started from the old ASI parking lot (now SugarBowl Academy) and meandered up the NW ridge on snowshoes. Great views from Donner. I wanted a more direct line back to my Jeep with my snowboard so I crossed over to the N shoulder of Mt Judah and snowboarded back. Snow was great and there were lots of people on both mountains.

Climbed in bad weather and got dumped on constantly with rain, light snow, and high winds. Snowboarded backside back to railroad tracks for hike to car. Good trip and is some easier backcountry boarding...

This was the start of a five peak, 19 mile marathon hike. The air was filled with wilfire smoke which finally clear as we return from the last peak.

Fine October day. Some clouds and cool. The fall colors were just beginning to show. I did this peak in combo with Mt. Judah for an easy 2 hour hike. One of the easiest peaks I've done, but well worth the time and effort.

Hiked around with CHskier and it looks like a third SPer was there that day, too.

Never been to Donner Peak without skis on my feet. Even more crowded than during the colder months and plenty of loud, obnoxious people doing their best to ruin the quiet beauty of the area. Fun anyway. Found a couple nice looking spots to do some bouldering.

scottfromcaliRoute Climbed: NE face Date Climbed: Feburary 13, 2004  Sucess!


There is a ton of ice all over, take a small side trip into the trail tunnels on the north west side where you find crystal clear ice flowing out of every crack there. There really isnt a defined route on this peak when I say NE face the route doesnt follow that exactly but you do change bearings often cause of the terrain. Easist way to obtain the summit is from the south a few class 2-3 moves could take you to the summit from other more direct routes up the summit block.

In search of boulders to climb rather than a summit but was pleased to find both!

Came over the top of Donner Peak on my way back from Tinker's Knob. There were quite a few tourists up there, and no summit register to be found. A lot of fun scrambling to be had in the area... Descended a steep gully on the northwest side, and came out on top of SPRR's China Wall.
