If you're willing to pay then snow canyon is great, you wouldn't have to worry about your stuff and I think they have showers, otherwise there really aren't any central locations for long-term camping. If you're climbing in the Utah hills area you can camp there for a long amount of time. I've slept in my car at chuckawala, and stayed in the VRG, but you wouldn't be able to leave your stuff there.

i was looking at camping up around sumo wall etc.

is it inadvisable to leave camp set up there while climbing elsewhere?

That is probably one of the best areas for camping if you need to leave it set up for any length of time. It is somewhat far from St. George, but a good place to hang out for a couple of days, when the weather is right you'll probably have a few friends out there, but it is getting too hot for that.

damn, too hot already? i still have 3ft of snow in the yard.

been studying the guide, i'll probably just spend a day at chuckawalla and the turtle, and climb the rest of the week in the utah hills/woodbury/welcome springs areas.

looks like the south of france or something out there!

it's hot over 50's, but still climbable cause you can find good shade. You should climb limestone first and sandstone last, your hands will be worn raw if you do it otherwise especcially your finger tips.

Ahhhh Saint George! We blew a tire on the Van...bouldered around this cool park with overhanging walls with garbage and broken glass strewn around while it pissed rain for three days straight...and turned two Barbie Dolls into Strippers for the trip to Vegas...Ahhh Saint George!
