Pie Shop

Named after an actual pie shop that used to be near the base of the trail Pie Shop is the closest climbing to South Lake Tahoe. Right off the road is some of the South Shore's finest bouldering, and 20 minutes up the trail is great climbing at all levels. The climbing is mostly trad although there are some bolted routes as well. There are some top ropable climbs, but only with gear for anchors as far as I know. While the cracks are quite clean for the most part the granite on the faces and aretes can be razor sharp.

Directions- The parking for Pie Shop is located at a pullout on Sawmill Pond Road about 1/4 mile from highway 50. Find a trail taking through the boulders and follow it up to Lunch Rock. Keep an eye out for a left fork otherwise you will end up on the right side of the wall.
