Eagle Lake Cliff Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Some nice mixed lines that form on the winter.
Eagle Lake Cliff sports some of the best cracks in the Tahoe Basin.
It is well worth the half hour approach up scenic Eagle Creek Canyon.
Space Walk is the gem of the area, and one of the best cracks, anywhere.
Eagle Lake Cliff lies above the south side of Eagle Lake.
To get there, hike the Eagle Lake trail to the lake, about one mile. Walk along the south shore and the cliff is obvious.
Weather station 7.1 miles from here

It was once said that this crack would never go free!In 1979, Rick Cashner and Angie Morales hiked up there to check it out. They climbed a crack, thinking it was "Space Walk". Rick thought "That wasn't that bad. What's the big deal?".He then walked a little farther and found "Space Walk" overhanging above him. He was blown away and knew that he had to have it!When looking up at Eagle Lake Cliff, one will notice an obvious, detatched spire on the right.This is "Off The Wall"."Space Walk" follows...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

TO the left of Buster Brown about 20 feet there is a line that I did that started thin fingers 5.10'ish and over the hump you need HUGE gear double #4's and #5's. I'm a wuss so I scampered down and TR'd from top.
At the top when TR'ing, look for the double pine trees next to each other and further on a bent over big pine tree that looks like someone sat on it all curled to the ground. In between the double pine trees you can rap down to rap anchors for this climb. Need #3 and master cams to anchor yourslef to get down to it.
