The East Shore Crags, like most of the developed crags around Tahoe, are mostly granite, but andesite, rhyolite, and tufa rock are also prevalent. This side of the lake is often referred to as the “Banana Belt” due to its sunny, eastern exposure. The East Shore Crags include multi-face rocks like Trippy Rock, Spooner Crag and Shakespeare Rock.
