Climbers from this area usually also include the many Woodfords Canyon crags a bit south of here on route 88 in this area.

Fixed Hardware Replacement Program

Suggest change
The Tahoe Climbers Coalition needs our help to update all the manky bolts in our area! South Lake Tahoe has always had a rich history of people coming up and doing whatever they want from surrounding areas, and as a result, the gear is pretty all over the place.

We are already using Bad Bolts to try and have the community report them, fix them as fast as we can, but it could be a super useful resource to update allowing people visiting to understand the status of hardware before they arrive!
