Photo exhibit celebrates local climbers

“Sending It: Climbing El Dorado” photo exhibit is on display at the City Gallery in the South Lake Tahoe Airport until April 21. The exhibit celebrates the passion and adventure of rock climbing in the community.

Inspired by architect and climber Charlie Downs, this exhibition showcases the beauty of El Dorado County’s granite landscapes including Lover’s Leap, Phantom Spires and Sugarloaf.

Taking a grass-roots curatorial approach, the exhibition combines community sourced photographs with images from the personal archives of legendary climber Royal Robbins, along with maps, ephemera, oral histories and video presentations. The exhibit is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. |
