Yes, they are listed in both the guide book and online guide as rainy day destinations. Check it at redriverclimbing.com

Forecast right now calls foe high 80's and partly cloudy. but on Sun there's a 30% chance of Isolated T-storms.

As for people going to be there... Anytime there's a 3 day weekend it's usually crowded. Hand out at Miguel's and ask around and I'm sure you'll get a few partners. as for me i'm either going to be at Muir Valley or Fortress trying to avoid the crowds(emphasis on Trying). But I'll probably break the camera.

That's so funny because when I want to avoid the crowds I avoid Muir and Fortress! We typically head out to Wall of Denial for the busy weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc.). Long hike, but you'll climb alone.

I think - if nothing goes wrong - I am gonna be there. I would love to meet new people to climb with - especially since I am getting back to this part of the country after a period of absence. (And I dont have enough pictures of me climbing, so that would be a plus :)) We should arrange to meet somehow.

That's why I said Trying... It's about the only place I can climb, everything else is WAY over my head.

Dude, don't give away the spot, we hit that place up on rocktober and some other weekends, and we never see anyone. Such a great spot as well. Anyway, if people hike out there, then I am sure they are more than cool enough to hang with. Plus the few bolts normally keep the cell phone users away.

Plug cams, slot nuts, and eat pizza, it's the Red

My husband and I are going to be at the Red on Labor day weekend, and you are welcome to take as many pictures of us as you want. :)

I think there may be two other people going with us... or one... or maybe none. Anyway, if the idea of having two kids around doesn't bother you, you are welcome to climb with us.

 Where you going to be on Sat? My Fiance' and I are looking for couples to climb with... shoot anyone for that matter.

PM me if you don't mind a few easygoing people to hang out with. I'm trying to get more confidence in her... she's afraid of heights and needs ALOT of moral support, but that's another story.

I am not sure where we are going on which day yet.

My husband's first choice choice would be between the Zoo, and the Solarium. I am O.K. with either one, but I also want to go to Funk Rock or Lady Slipper (Emerald City/Global village) at some point this weekend. We have never been to any of these areas...

I am guessing that Military wall and Left flank would be pretty crowded b/c Military wall had a lot of traffic even when DH and I were climbing there in the middle of the week couple of weeks ago . I've heard that Global village gets crowded, too...

It ends up being 3 climbers in our group-- my husband and I and another girl. So an addition of the 4th climber will make for more climbing for everyone :) If we see you at Miguel's Saturday night, we could make plans for Sunday, assuming you don't have any other more exciting people to climb with.

Man, it sounds like there's a WHOLE CRAP LOAD of people going to the red this weekend...oughta be nuts at Miguel's.

I'm sure you can find someone to climb with. We're doing Military sat EARLY if you wanna climb with us?

Probably do Left Flank after lunch (follow the shade)
