End of the season at Lover’s Leap?

By November 21, 2019 No Comments

Yesterday here at Lover’s Leap we received our first bit of snow since the end of September.  This morning it’s already gone but the temps seem to be cooling off.  Climbing will be possible still through the weekend, so if you are headed up to Lake Tahoe, California and you want to experience some of the best multi-pitch climbing in the Tahoe area, get it before it’s gone for the year.

Phantom Spires and Sugarloaf are blessed with good sunny climbs throughout the winter, though at the Phantom Spires, snow can shut down the access road.

We here at Lover’s Leap Guides will still be offering guiding climbs, learn to lead classes, multi-pitch climbing, self rescue courses throughout the Lake Tahoe area at Sugarloaf and the Phantom Spires(until the Spires road is snowed in).

Let us know how we can provided a guided tour to some of the best granite the Sierra’s have to offer!
