Description

Power face climbing. This area was originally developed by Mike Carville in 1989 but has had 5 new routes developed recently. This area is approximately 1/4 mile north of the Fortress which is also documented in Mike Carville's 1991 Tahoe Guide. The area sees afternoon sun. This cliff and all the other cliffs in the Benches area are not subject to flooding.

Getting There

From the parking area on the Bowman Lake road where it crosses the Yuba river, walk approximately 750 yards on a dirt road you will see a cairn on the right take this trail to access all the benches sections including Kudos Kliff (except Steel Monkey and Two Unknown Climbs). For a Topo of all these locations and GPS coordinates see Josh's new North Tahoe guide Book

Just out of curiosity, what is the deal with all of the routes being listed as PG-13? May 19, 2013
i think that comment may have been from the routes done in late 80s/early 90s. all new routes are very well bolted. most old stuff has been retro-bolted. cheers, m May 29, 2013

the rock on this wall is a cool texture, it's very grippy/ will shred you for not moving smoothly. Oct 4, 2017
