Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 10 seconds
Season: May-November
Number of problems: 32
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

Got the barn door blues? Come here and hone your frog-sitting, swing-fighting, foot-swapping arÍte skills to perfection. These 12 boulders just minutes off Highway 50 provide 30 problems from VB to V7, mostly on arÍtes or prows. Some of the problems lean toward highballing without quite crossing the line. If you do come off, good landings will keep your fingers the only things getting sprained. Known locally as the Berkeley Boulders, though Berkeley camp is a mile from here. It is also known as the Bower Boulders. This is one of the better mid-summer areas, as Echo Pass often has cooler temperatures than the basin.
