DescriptionEagle Rock is an outcrop of volcanic welded tuff on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. Only a few minutes uphill from the pull-out, there are five to ten bolted lines. Some look a little more "adventurous". But there's several well-bolted routes too. These routes aren't listed in any guidebook, so there's no ratings or route names known.
Getting ThereDrive three miles south on Hwy 89 from Tahoe City to Eagle Rock. Park in the pull-out on the west side of the highway immediately past Eagle Rock.
From there, walk north back up the road 20 feet then cut left and up over some fallen trees and shrubs. Head right after climbing up 20-30 feet and you should see the tiny dirt trail. Follow that up for 50 feet or so and it will be on your left in a clearing.
The majority of the routes are on the southeast corner of Eagle Rock, and also on the nearby east and south aspects.
