Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 1 minute
Season: June-November
Number of problems: 40
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

The Saddle boulders have the highest concentration of hard problems in the Tahoe basin, as well as great rock and problems at intermediate grades. While the views arenít as spectacular as the Top of Snowshed boulders, the problems are bigger, harder and better. Come here if youíre hard core Ė you wonít regret it. The season here is a little shorter than some of the South Lake areas due to the altitude.
