I live in Vancouver and come from a city 45 min away from Potrero Chico (Mty).

I have an offer for a job in red Deer. It pays at least 20% more than what I make in BC and my wife makes 15% more too.

Is it possible to find decent climbing destinations around Red Deer? I know Squamish is tough to beat, but is there good sport climbing in the area, 2 hour driving probably the limit.

Is there a climbing culture in Red Deer? I come to realize that Vancouver does have one, with 5 gyms to cling on to until summer arrives, with at least the 2 that I know mostly always packed.

Not climbing would probably break the deal, although, money is also necessary in life, and having more means more access to remote climbing.

So, any comments?

Miguel
