I've been a regular customer to the previous owners for beer, ice, crag-chow, etc...

Happy to return some business to the place next time I come by (buy).

You climb?

I used to frequent the old one, usually don't pull the camping 'n smores scene at the Leap lately so don't have much reason.

Best thing I ever bought at the old one was a pack of condoms, so that's pretty important protection to stock as well ;).

Really nice folks, good selection of gear if you need it & plenty of beers to choose from. Dig it!

BITD, i bought a "stawberry mtn" swami, chalk bag and many other items there. The chalk bag became iconic for the 70/80 period of tahoe- seemed EVERYONE had one. Thanks Victor Marcus! Support your local shops, or SOON you wont have any.
Worster than you

Ha, I came in to give this thread a bump, and it was done for me many times over! Visited the store yesterday after climbing and we hung out at the patio in the side yard. Owner (I assume that's Squirrel!) came out and chatted us up for a while - great community vibe. Fantastic place to hang out after a climb, and as posted above, a startlingly interesting selection of single beers. Thanks for making this shop what it is, and I hope the success continues.

Black Diamond camalots and wild country cams have just arrived. If you don't see what you want, squirrel will do special orders.

Spitting rain off and on right now and looks like the weather is going to be funky until Thursday.

There is some impressive crags/ boulders on the north side of the highway too. From memory: one area near Kyburz, and another at a bit lower elevation. You'd think they would get hit up as much as the Leap, but approach/ access may be the issue. IDK.
i'm gumby dammit

phantom spires is in between kyburz and strawberry and sugarloaf is above kyburz. there is also wrights lake cliffs (further up wrights lake road than phantom spires) and the 31st milepost tract which is pretty insignificant compared to the others

Yeah, 31 milestone is way insignificant compared to the others. WAY!

The store is now way bitchin as described earlier. They'll match prices, you won't find you gear cheaper anywhere else. Plus, a store like that, run by such an awesome dude and his family is bound to become nothing less than a historical landmark in the climbing world. Get in early so you can lean back in your rocking chair some day and tell the story about how back in the day, "you were there man"!
