I'm trying to plan a weekend of sport climbing and I'd appreciate any advice people have about where to go in South Lake Tahoe for the highest concentration of mid-level sport climbs (5.8-5.10's). Alternatively, if there's somewhere else on the west side of the Sierra's that you'd strongly recommend instead (the Grotto, Consumnes) please let me know. Thanks

Luther spires has a number of routes in that range that would keep you busy for a day.

You could spend the other day at Luther Rock. Kind of a painful approach but there are 5 climbs in your range at distillery wall.

Most of the quality routes at Big Chief start in the mid/high .10 range. There is one 5.8 and two 5.9's

But they are soft, sooo...



There are also more routes in that range at the Sawtooths-- which is even closer to the Big Chief parking lot than Big Chief!
