I'm looking for the "go to" guidebook for areas in northern California Mainly Tahoe area. Is there one single guidebook or will have to get several different ones?

I'm not really a fan of "overview" or "state wide" guidebooks, but for a NorCal overview guidebook, the Slater/Summit NorCal Road Trip is pretty good (though a bit pricey)
It doesn't really focus on Tahoe however.

For Tahoe specifically there is Supertopo's South Lake guide

The new North Lake guide

Or the old, but comprehensive Faclon Guide

LOCALS GUIDE to "Rock Climbs of North Tahoe" is a comprehensive, full color, guidebook to all of the 1,300 rock climbing routes in the greater North Tahoe-Donner-Reno region. With over 700 routes not included in any of the other mentioned guidebooks.

CAMP 4 PRESS does not, unfornuately, have a guidebook out for South Tahoe, but the Supertopo guidebook will get you to a fair amount of the classics there. The old, black and white, Falcon guide is 20 years out of date but would get you by for both the South and North regions of the lake if you do not want to buy both of the newer guidebooks.
