DescriptionPower face climbing. Tons of new route on kudos/fast food cliffs. See John Robinson topo of this area on Emeralds main page under photos. This area was originally developed my 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. On the Emeralds main page herein is a 3 page topo of the entire Emeralds Benches area. (including Kudos Kliff). This cliff and all the other cliffs in the Benches area are not subject to flooding.
No overnight camping on PG&E property Details
Noticed several tents while walking into the emeralds climbing area this last weekend ( 5/20/17 ). PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) has posted several signs at the gate and other areas that state camping is NOT allowed. Please respect this so that access does not become an issue! Thanks in advance, Colby W.
Getting ThereFollow the directions on the Emeralds main page to the parking area on the Bowman Lake road where it crosses the Yuba river. From here 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 the Photo's of the Emeralds on the main Emeralds page.
