DescriptionTwo bolted climbs between Steel Monkey wall and the Benches area.
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 ThereFrom the Emeralds parking area walk around the gate and go 1200 yards on this dirt road you will see a some 3' boulders and a cairn on the right. Take this trail 100 yards and you will come to Steel Monkey Wall on the right. Above Steel Monkey Wall is Sun Bench area. 3rd class up the gully to the right of Steel Monkey Wall continue up 50 yards or so to a cliff band. Sun Bench area is on the left side of this cliff. You can stay right and find a right wondering ramp that will take you to the benches areas (Kudos, Fortress etc) See Mike Carville's 1991 guide book for locations and new North Tahoe Guide.
