Just remember that at some point in your income, time becomes worth more than money. Quality of life is more important to most climbers than promotional opportunities.

Everyone has their own notion of quality of life and you should define what that is for you. I live in Fayetteville, WV. 2500 routes (and growing) just a few minutes from our house, low cost of living, friendly people, and no giant egos. Not to mention kayaking and mountain biking. That is quality of life to me.
Well said, I live in a small town close to climbing and kayaking. Would not think of moving to a big city just for money. Personally I wouldn't live in a big city for any amount of money.

^ Keep in mind the OP has a particular situation. She must work for a company that will assist with her residency status here in the US. Usually, this does mean larger corporations located in metro areas, especially at the start of her career. Though one never knows...maybe a twist of fate will connect her with an awesome situation that lands her near a climbing mecca.

How do you define "big city"?

well in SF, you pretty much feel like you are in Punjab or some old city down in south India and feel free to come in and join the club and if you are in to some software programming then you fit right in where everyone is in the same business. yes, there are some rocks and boulders around here but now these days, you have to wait in line . its worth to mention that living cost in SF is expensive and generally 50% of your income goes to living cost.

I'm curious as to what profession is so specialized that working in it limits someone to the coasts or Chicago.

yeah yeah, she already said IT, but there's an answer for you.
