Howdy Folks,
I'm wondering if there's a climber or two with kids in Boulder schools who might point me and my wife towards some places on the net or resources in the real world to get the lowdown on the school/living situation.

We're looking to relocate to Boulder this coming summer for grad school and have a 5-year-old and a 7-month-old

And any climbing info would be great too!

OK, we're making an exploratory trip to Boulder for a week in the end of January. I lucked out last year and caught a 60 degree day in December on my only day in Boulder.
It's possible that climbing will not be on the agenda at all, but I'm wondering if it's likely enough to be temperate that I should bring all my gear? I'm thinking a harness, shoes and some warm pants might be the way to go.
I'd love to get in touch with people, especially people who are balancing climbing with work and might be able to help me do the same.

Matt,
We've had 60 degree days for the last month. There have only been a few days that were un-climbable. Bring gear.
