Going to Tahoe soon and wondering if there is any sport climbing. Is there any overhung sport climbing at least 5.10?

Star Wall, Mayhem Cove. That should get you started....both contain routes well over 5.10 though

BIG CHIEF in TRUCKEE!!!!! all sport... 5.10 galore! Some great 5.9 classics to get warmed up on too... Juggy overhung and so fun! Great views and such... Community can be a bit territorial there, but whatever, right... get the book that has been published just for this spot, great beta and thorough route descriptions. called big chief by maximus press or something, Also luther spires in south lake is great too. South lake has a lot of trad, but some good spot too, especially in the higher grades... "90 ft wall" in emerald bay is awesome for easy TR set up on tough vertical crack climbing (5.9-5.11s) Lover Leap is a big wall if your into that... Tahoe is sick, just moved from there back to colorado.... but plenty of sport routes.

There are a couple of kick ass sport routes at LL too, don't forget.

Donners has a lot of sport too. I don't know how much is overhanging though.

I did include LL, if you mean lovers leap... South lake is lower in elevation, so probably better chance for dry approaches there... Donner Pass will most like have some snow still!

Great thanks. I can lead 11s but I'm going with a friend and just want some longer sport overhung routes to have fun on.
