Dave Rock Climbing

Tahoe Rock Climbing options are vast for all skill levels and disciplines. Flawless Sierra granite, pocketed volcanic tuft and glassy basalt provide plenty of climbing variety throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin. Whether you prefer faces or cracks, sport climbing or trad climbing, bouldering or multi-pitching, Lake Tahoe has excellent rock climbing for everyone!

Be sure to check out the Rock Climbing Lake Tahoe Guidebook by Falcon Guide for topo maps and info on the whole region, or if you're looking to sport climb at Big Chief on the North Shore, grab the Big Chief Area Climbs book.
