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.

Getting There 

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.

Featured Route For Eagle Lake Cliff
Heading into the 1st crux.  Definitely the most powerful & technical.

Seams to Me 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : Eagle Lake Cliff
Spectacular crack just left of the right-slanting crack of "The Nagual". A 60m rope will just get you to a ledge above the ground, from which you can easily downclimb. Be careful. The route can be TRd with some care - scramble up the gully a ways to the left (the second gully!)....[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.
