I am considering climbing Pilot mnt. after xmas. Can anyone give me an idea of the usual weather at that time of year there? It is cold and snowy here in west pa. then.

Yeah man...Sauratown is great sport routes, mostly in the 5.9 to 5.10 range. If you're leading 5.10 it's an awesome place to head out to...beats the hell out of Pilot. It does have some seepage so go when it's dry.

Another good winter/year 'round climbing area is a little further down the road (ie 1.5 hours, it's on the far side of Charlotte) Crowders has a lot of top roping and a handfull of good sport routes. Tons of top ropes under 5.10. Sport routes...start at 5.10+.
