Donnell Reservoir, Moonshadow, Stanislaus National Forest. A 1500-foot wall lies on the north side of Donnell Reservoir just off Highway 108. The unique approach to the wall requires a canoe and is about as close to sea-cliff climbing as one can get in California. In October Dave Yerian and I climbed a fairly continuous crack system straight up the center of the longest and cleanest part of the wall, starting about fifty feet left (west) of the talus beach. V, 5.11, 10 pitches.
