Description

Strawberry today is many climbers' favorite stop along 50. Get beta and supplies at Aja's and Squirrel's Strawberry Station General Store. Shower that fresh dirt off or sit down for a meal at Strawberry Lodge. Look up at the Leap any time you like, it's just down a residential road from here. Pyramid Creek Canyon's trailhead in Twin Bridges, gateway to adventure wilderness climbing, is just two miles uphill on highway 50.

Historically, Liz and Royal Robbins brought celebrity attention to this area when they opened the Rockcraft Climbing School here in 1967, popularizing the Leap and Tahoe rock beyond its native states. Rockcraft is defunct this century, but Lover's Leap today has guides Petch, Heidi and friends.
