I like to climb sport or trad to 5.10+. Would like to spend entire third week of october 2002 climbing. Can travel to Cal. or stay on Colorado Front Range. I have all the gear and know many areas.

October is the perfect time to be in Bishop! Owens gets my vote. Not sure if I can get the time off to meet up with you but I would definitely recommend the Gorge.

Both Yosemite and Owens are great in October. I think your choice boils down to whether you want to sport climb or trad climb.

Kings is nicer than either if you like remote, wild climbs in a more pristine setting. No roads (past Road's End, at least ) and some really, really committing stuff.

I'd love to make it but if I don't, I'll copy any part of my guidebook that'd help you (get a copy of Secor to narrow it down and get your juices going).

Kings Canyon is great backcountry climbing.

I concur with jab. I just recommended Owens because if you just have one week you probably wouldn't want to burn a lot of time on approaches. The weather(thunderstorms) starts getting sketchy that late in the season in the high country. I don't know this for a fact, but if you just showed up at Owens it might be an easier place to find a partner. There is also some great bouldering in the Bishop area.
