Twin Crags

Twin Crags is by far the closest climbing to Tahoe City being just out of town and with a short approach. Despite that (and the great lake views) it doesn't see much in the way of crowds. the rock is slick, but well featured basalt columns filled with splitter type cracks. The climbing is mostly trad and top rope, but there are typically bolts available whenever pro is lacking. Due to the basalitic column nature of the rock, the routes are pretty tighly packed in (there's over 40 on the 400' long cliff). Many share anchors at the top. The selection of difficulty is very good here with an excellent distribution between 5.7 up to 5.12. To top rope, hike around to either side of the cliff band.
