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.
