Spooner Crag

When the weather heats up there are several areas to climb  in Tahoe to keep from overheating. Spooner Crag is one of them. At 7,200', it is not the highest in the area, but it also has several shade trees covering climbs and belays and there is climbing on several aspects as well. You can also choose from some decent slab climbing on the south face or hop around to the west face and find featured rock dotted with pockets and huecos that is rare in Tahoe. There are a few routes that are topropable if you're okay with a little easy exposed slab climbing. There are also some good trad first leads too, but the majority of the rock is set up for sport climbing. While most of the routes are in the 40-50 foot range, some can be continued all the way to the top of the rock requiring two short pitches.
