Hey all, I will be visiting my daughter in San Fran mid April and would like to take her climbing on some good and easy granite for a couple of days. Trad multi-pitch okay. I was thinking South Lake Tahoe. Any other suggestions?
Lover's Leap for sure. Best 5.6s-5.8s in California. All of the climbing is walking distance from the campsite. There is also a restaurant, small grocery store, and a motel walking distance from the crags.
As noted above, Lover's Leap is far from being a sure bet in April; there may be snow or meltwater to contend with. There are some other Tahoe area that are more reliable at that time of year; Sugarloaf comes to mind. Tahoe locals can probably fill this information in in more detail. Maybe post up on Supertopo; that seems to be the prefered site for the Tahoe/Bay Area crowd.
Also, as noted above, Tollhouse is a much warmer/drier option than Tahoe, with plenty of easy slabby climbing to be found there.
