Description 

Columnar basalt cliff above the Truckee River. South- to southwest-facing exposure; best in spring, fall, and winter (when it hasn't snowed recently). Killer views of Lake Tahoe. Gets blockier/more broken the higher you climb, but climbs significantly better than it looks; longer/better climbs on right side of crag. Most routes have a mix of gear and bolts.

Getting There 

~1 mile north of Tahoe City; turn off at "Twin Crags Summer Home Tract" sign (on east side of Hwy. 89). Park at end of road, or anywhere that is not obstructing someones driveway. Trail heads out from end of road; ~10 minute hike to crag.
