Description

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 Falls Trail west and south from its trailhead, about one mile. Once you see the lake ahead, go right at the next trail junction and follow Eagle Lake Trail to the water's edge. Go left from here, walking along the east side of it to the south shore, and the cliff is obvious there.

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. Aug 17, 2010
Found a copy of the Supertopo South Lake Tahoe Climbing guidebook lying on the trail near Eagle Lake Cliff on 8/26/2017. Shoot me a message if you think it's yours! There isn't a name or phone number, but there is a yellow post-it note taped in the middle marking Eagle Lake Cliff. Aug 28, 2017
