Climbing Lover's Leap...

Rate this Adventure Lake Tahoe Lover's Leap

Added by The Outbound Collective

  • Probably the most difficult climb out of the 3 in the area
  • Challenging hand-holds keep you on your toes
  • Usually not crowded

The myriad rock features offer many different climbing options for each crux which can help or confuse. Sometimes it is easier to do an improbable face move to the side of a major feature. Some 5.8 moves, the crux on Haystack for example feel like 5.7 if you have the perfect beta or 5.10 if you miss a key hold. Beat? Want good food at a decent price? Strawberry Lodge is right there (, go in, have a drink and eat. Done.
