I'm going to be at the Red for a couple days in early July. I'm thinking of doing a day of trad and a day of sport. I'm taking recommendations for awesome climbs.

I'm looking for 5.7-5.9 trad to warm up on and a few 5.10s nearby to try to onsight. In that regard, I've heard that "Rock Wars" is really good. I've also heard that "B3" is amazing, but 5.11 is definitely pushing it for me on gear. However, if the rests are good and gear is good, I'd probably go for it.

On the sport side of things, I'm looking for 5.8-5.10 to warm-up on and for my partner to climb and maybe a 5.11 or two to work for a day.

So...any good areas/walls to hit that meet these criteria?

Long Wall would be an excellent choice w/ Rock Wars & Autumn being classics. There is some easier trad @ LW too for warm ups as well as some pretty decent sport climbing. Game Boy @ LW is one of the longest sport climbs in the Red. LW is usually a good place for avoiding the crowd.

As far as a sport crag, that is really a hard question if you only have a day. You might want to do a search in the online guide for crags that are in the shade because it is going to be hot in July.
