Description 

Space Wall has some very cool long sport climbs on weathered granite. The routes are well-protected, moderately challenging and all high-quality. Besides one 5.9, the rest of the climbs are 10+ to 12a.

The five minute approach quickly brings you seclusion that the road-side rocks do not afford. The east-facing view gives you a nice overlook of Donner Lake.

Getting There 

Park at the Peanut Gallery parking lot. The approach path starts about 20 feet left of the lot (if you were facing uphill). It begins with a steep climb up off the road (~10 ft) then traverses through Manzenita bushes uphill and to the right. The path comes across a stream-bed (will be dry in the later summer) and continues up and right, above the peanut gallery. Continue on this relatively flat path to the right until you spot a Cairn just to the right of a tree. Go around the right side of the tree atop a small cliff, and then downclimb a class 3 slab to reach the base.

The wall is also (barely!) visable from the Road Cut pullout.

Made in Japan 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : Space Wall
Made in Japan is a long vertical climb that begins on the blunt arete on the main face of Space Wall. It first uses a finger crack before finding its way past a series of flakes to some technical face moves before finally turning the arete and finishing on some easier slabby granite.Some of the large flakes are a little loose and will probably fall off one day. I recommend getting on the route before that happens because Made in Japan isn't worth missing....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
