All summer!  Sucess!

I love Donner Summit and was fortunate to be able to climb there about once a week all summer. Even did the highway 40 "climb" via road bike. Awesome descent!

One of my favorite playgrounds!  Sucess!

Forget how many times i've been here; one of my favorite areas in tahoe. Have rock climbed all over this peak and even the train trussle wall between tunnels off the North side near the bowl! Love it in the winter, have skiied into the bowl then snowshoed/skinned up to Judah then back to the parking area below the overlook lot multiple years. Someone left a nice kicker off the top of the center train tunnel roof drop-offs. Most air i've ever got followed by a drop down one of the gullies into the bowl. Awesome runs!!

Friends first REAL summit  Sucess!

I was using this and other Tahoe peaks as training for Orizaba when a friend asked to join me. We climbed Lincoln, Judah and Donner peaks that day. On the top of Donner his jaw dropped as he told me he had never been this high without a ski lift! Needless to say, another one is hooked!

School of Rock

I went on a rock climbing weekend trip with Cal Adventures (Berkeley). We spent two days rock climbing all around Donner Summit including School of Rock and some other areas I don't recall now. Was my first introduction to rock climbing and i've been hooked (and struggling for partners) ever since!)
