Hello Everyone:

I will be in Zephyr Cove for the weekend of July 18/19/20 and want to stick around for the following week or two.... or three? and get on as much rock as possible.

I once lived in Flagstaff and was a solid 5.10+ trad climber with a few 11s under his belt, but am in Florida for school. . .

I am looking advice on where to climb. It looks like Donner Summit and Lover's Leap are the top choices. My granite experience is limited, and includes Granite mnt (AZ), tuolumne meadows, looking glass (NC, not really granite) and lumpy ridge. Ok, I guess that's more than I realized...

Considerations include:

* I want to stay in one general area the whole time.
* I am a poor student: dirt bag accommodations.
* If I can avoid renting a car, that would be best.
* I may not have a partner, so crowded may be a good thing.
* I love long moderates (5.6 - 5.8)
* I'll try most things if they are well protected and I have a good partner.
* Free beer
* boobies
* brown paper packages tied up with string....

Wait a minute...

I think you get the idea.

Where shall I go pull warm stone?

Yeah man hit up cave rock. Its right there by Zephyr cove. Its technically closed to climbing due to the indians that arent even around here. But I figure if Nevada can blow a hole through it for a highway than Im gonna climb it. Climbing is alot less impact than dynomite in my opinion. Just be sleek about it. Once you get up in the cave no passerbys can see you anyway. Hard routes in there! You can also climb down by the water. No one can see you down there either except boaters. Drop me a line if you need a belay partner for a day when you get down here. Peace. J
