Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 7 minutes
Season: June-November
Number of problems: 51
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

This area offers the best climbing at The Secrets. It also features the highest concentration of problems and most varied rock with arętes, steep faces, traverses, bulges, and knobs.

My first attempts at finding this place had me convinced it was all just a vicious sandbag by some locals with a mean sense of humor. I drove all over and only found a few boulders that looked decent, and many of them needed extensive cleaning. Then Mark Nicholas took Chris Mac out for a tour, and when next I showed up everything was different. There were boulders everywhere! There’s nothing like a fresh pair of eyes to render the world comprehensible.

Notable Bouldering Problems

Dunk and Dangle (V10), Grim (V10), Oak Tree in My Way Traverse, (V8), It's Awl Dat (V5),
