Description

Giant 50 foot boulder on the east shore of Lake Tahoe.

Getting There

On Nevada Highway 28 about 3 miles north of the junction with U.S. Highway 50.

The parking area is a shoulder on the east side of highway 28 where Bliss creek intersects the road. From the parked cars, the climbing area can be seen on the west side of the road from the car and is just a short 30 second hike away once you cross the street.

A small local crag that can often feel quite crowded. However, most of the people who climb here are quite friendly. Please uphold this attitude and be willing to share the rock if others show up. Feb 17, 2011
