Head up old Hwy 40 past Donner Lake toward Donner Summit. You'll go over a cool arch bridge, then pass the Pacific Crest Trail (just after the bridge).

Just after that you'll come across a moderate slab of rock right at the level of the road, a 1 minute approach. This is the School Rock area. School Rock is actually up above the slab I think, up where Kindergarten Crack is, a classic area ropeless scramble.

But that lower slab is a great place to TR the kids. And of course its usually swarmed on the weekends.

Oh, you can hike up the PCT toward Grouse Slabs for some nice bouldering too.

ps. Lovers Leap is a good 1.5 hour drive one way from Truckee, I wouldn't think that's what you're after

pps. The slab I mentioned above was well featured in some cornball climbing movie produced my a high school kid, I forget the name.... Extreme Edge or something rad like that. They held a climbing contest on this slab, which when you see it will produce a giggle or two.
