Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 20 minutes
Season: May-November
Number of problems: 34
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

This area is absolutely fantastic - boasting superb granite, amazing views, tricky cool problems, and highballs of death. Most boulders face south so they are great in cold temperatures. In the summer, climb here in the mornings and afternoons. A local geology buff is convinced that Echo Lake was glacially carved, and in the process bulldozed all these boulders up on the ridge before melting away – it’s a good thing, too, or these great chunks of fun would be 30 feet underwater. Hmmm... How many boulders do you think are hiding underwater in the Tahoe Basin alone – and how about that big wall climbing just north of D. Bliss State Park? Haven’t seen it? Well – it starts out in the water, and drops 1500 feet to the bottom. If global warming really gets rolling, we might have some Yosemite scale walls appear when the lake dries up.
