El Potrero sounds like a pretty good bet.

But if you definitely want to stay in the US, two places I could recommend would be Shelf Road in Colorado, and El Rito in New Mexico.

Both have have lots of good easy to moderate sport climbing. Both stay pretty warm in the winter, and have really close by and good camping. Both are pretty much sport only, so meeting partners should work out fine. El Rito is smaller, but you could definitely get a week's worth of climbing there in the 5.9 - 5.11 range.

Neither are world class, but most world class sport climbing destinations are not going to meet all your criteria.

Oh, and they're fairly close to each other - you could easily spend some time at one, and then drive to the other.

GO
