Getting weather forecast...
D.L. Bliss State ParkBliss ... the name is fitting. This is arguably one of Tahoe's finest bouldering areas. Nestled on the waters edge along Tahoe west shore, Bliss state park is peppered with free standing granite erratics ranging from pee wees to towering horror shows.
The area is separated into three smaller zones, north, central, and south Bliss. While the central sector holds the most consistent concentration, each area has a unique character, and enough problems to be worth repeat visits.
Besides its easy access, and close proximity to Tahoe... The quality of the problems here is really what sets Bliss apart from a lot of other areas. Big lines on thin granite features, complex technical sequences, and good landings, give this place an aesthetic quality all it's own. Tips can get shredded quick here though, so it's smart to choose your objectives wisely.
Summers can get hot as there is not a lot of cover, but a morning session can easily be followed by a dip in the lake. In spring and fall, bliss really comes into its own as cooler temps make for awesome friction opening up some of the more classic lines.
