Mayhem Cove

Mayhem Cove provides some of Tahoe's more difficult sport routes, especially with the closure of Cave Rock. It also provided excellent granite, afternoon shade, and spectacular views, all with a short approach. The routes mostly face SE so the sun is gone by 1:00-2:00 except for the longest of summer days. This also means the snow will be gone before other areas of Eagle Canyon like Eagle Lake Cliffs. Some of the belay zones especially along the left wall are well shaded by trees and may hold snow a little later than the right wall. Most if not all routes are well bolted and have chains at the top and 12 quickdraws should get you through all of the climbs.

Directions - From South Lake Tahoe head north on 89 from the Y. Park at the Eagle Falls parking area. Parking is $5 inside the parking area or free on the roadside parking areas. All of the Eagle Canyon areas start here. Instead of heading up the main trail follow a trail past the bathrooms to some picnic tables. Here you will see Smoke Rock. Head uphill to the left of  the rock and you will very shortly reach an old road cut. Follow this to the right and after a little while you will see a climber's trail heading up to the left. Follow this to Mayhem Cove
