Sport climbing at Big Chief in Truckee/near Tahoe

  • Jul 5, 2014 · 10:30 AM

Let's climb in Big Chief in Truckee River Canyon!!

Big Chief is a good combo of top rope and lead climbing. I will bring a 60m rope. (i'm missing some of my own equipment at the moment, but between the rope and Katelyn's stuff we should be good).

I will add more information on parking, etc.

    Hi guys, I'm wondering if I can join somebody driving from San Francisco? I have all essential sport climbing gear, rope, quickdraws etc.

      @Georgi Are you sure you can't ride up in the morning with one group and back with another the same night? That's what it seems like I might be doing...

      Giorgi Have you tried Truckee HOtel downtown? it looks like they have 2 rooms left: http://www.truckeehot...­ and they are so nice and rustic and if you want to save $ split a room with someone as they have two twins beds. :)

    I'm interested and could bring a rope/draws/pad/slings/ATCs with me, but I'm also in San Francisco and not sure I want to stay the night before. Perhaps if others feel the same way, a group of us could share an early-morning drive and meet up with the first group a bit later on?

      Maybe you could drive up with me, we're leaving between 5 & 6am on Saturday and ride back with Madeline?

    Do you have any particular crags in mind. I am thinking of spending the whole long weekend out climbing.

      Are you guys camping over the weekend? I'll be backpacking around there and could drop by and do some climbing

      I agree. I was looking online for somewhere to camp in the Tahoe area on Saturday night, but everywhere is pretty much full. I'm planning to call some places that didn't have online reservations today.

    I am not going to be there at 8am. It is going to be a 4 hour drive for me. We will get there between 9am and 10am.

    As I said, I've never been out there before, but Donner Pass, particularly Grouse Slab, looks pretty cool. http://www.mountainproject.com/v/donner-pass/105733935

      either way. I just want to climb.

      June 30, 2014

  • Katelyn C.

    I've never been to Tahoe, but I am excited to climb out there. I can lead up to a 5.10c sport outdoors. I have 15 quickdraws, harness, shoes, ATC, etc., but no rope. My friend isn't much of a climber, but he is definitely outdoorsy and is down to climb a little on Saturday. We'll probably do some hiking too. I'm also open to suggestions on places to camp (preferably hammock friendly), as we are intending to camp on Saturday night and meet up with some friends on Sunday in Tahoe.

    June 30, 2014

    • Katelyn C.

      No. I usually just use draws, as all of the routes that I have climbed have either had two bolts or chains at the top that you can clip quickdraws to.
