Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 1 - 15 minutes
Season: April-November
Number of problems: 55
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

Known mainly as the best moderate multi-pitch climbing in California, Loverís Leap also has a small concentration of exceptional boulder problems. The high quality granite is extremely textured and offers a wide variety of hand holds. Most problems are in the V1-V5 range and offer everything from steep crimps and slopers to long traverses and short cracks. There are enough problems for a full day of bouldering. If itís scorching out, the river offers some great swimming holes. Or, for cooler temps, drive 15 minutes to The Secrets. Or just blow the whole day off, slackline the campground and knock back a few cold ones.

A lot of new problems have been established recently around the main cliffband. Most of these were put up by Vic Copeland - his test-piece of the area is The Cubist V10!

Notable Bouldering Problems

The Cubist V10, Paul's Problem V3, Monks Traverse V4, Boo Boos Traverse V6/V8
