What are everybody's favorite spots to climb in the Tahoe Region when it's really hot out (90+)? Specifically looking for afternoon shade. Multipitch trad preferred, but I'll take what I can get!

Black Wall, Donner Summit.
There's falcon closures on some routes on the left side right now, but everything right of One Hand Clapping is good to go. Many other options to find shade on the summit in the PM, but mostly single pitch trad.

Can I hijack this thread to ask for recommendations of fun sport (or TR, just don't have a rack) routes in the 5.10 or below range on the south side? Does that exist?

The raptor closure on the left side of Black Wall was lifted this week.
East Snowshed Wall is also shaded in the afternoon, not multipitch but good mix of single pitch trad and sport routes.

Luther Spires for sport or 90' for TR.
