All the climbing gear for your Sierra adventure
Truckee has some of the best granite rock climbing in the world just a mile or two from the store. Some of us climb regularly for a lunch break! On your way to Tuolumne Meadows? Stop in for advice on routes or to grab the gear you have lost or worn to shreds. Make a Tahoe Climbing Trip out of it and hit 5 star climbing meccas like Lover’s Leap, Woodfords, Phantom Spires, Sugarloaf, Shirley Canyon, Big Cheif, Coldstream Canyon, and more. It’s endless. Fred Becky would say “there is more good granite rock in California than the rest of the world combined”. Weather you sport or trad climb we got the gear that will not only protect you but help you get up those crags with confidence. Donner Summit is 2 miles up the road, offering easy access, friendly locals, and a thousands worthy climbs. We sell Black Diamond, Mammut, Sterling, La Sportiva, Camp, Petzl and Metolius.
People come to The BackCountry for EXPERT ADVICE and FRIENDLY SERVICE! We stock a wide variety of trad, sport and ice climbing gear and our staff can recommend routes and adventures in the Tahoe/Truckee area.
