Stress Management Boulders

California > Lake Tahoe > I-80 Corridor > Bowman/Emeralds > Emeralds
Access Issue: No overnight camping on PG&E property Details

Description

About 4 or 5 good boulders in the forest just off Hwy. 20 Great for a couple hour session with good warm ups and a few test pieces.

Getting There

About a half mile down the road from the Max Boulder. Park on the right side of the hwy on a dirt road a couple miles down hwy 20 toward Bowman Lake Rd. the dirt road ends immediately once you pull in. Don't be fooled by the pull out before the one you want up the road which is private property and has a chain blocking the road. This small dirt road is before the flume. Follow a faint trail straight in to the forest the boulders will be to your right once you hit a large boulder and a pile of rocks that don't look so good to climb. (see beta photos and map location)

Smaller boulder adjacent to the Stress Management Boulder. Has a couple problems on it worth checking out. Watch out for the loose block at the start of the right problem.

Stress Management Boulder. Warm up slab. There are many fun easy routes up this 15-20' slab.

If you made it to here... these aren't the boulders take a right and head downhill.

[Hide Comment] is it okay if I add the sub areas? I see you didn't do it.

I mean, I might be going out there's no snow up there. I might climb here so I can have an accurate description.

But I would need to pick up the Outlying areas guidebook. Nov 24, 2017
