This one should work for you:



Whuite Gowld.

You can drive up for power, or down for speed.

Move to Alberta or BC, and get into Alpine and Ice climbing. You'll get all the Wheeling you can handle.

Locals might help, but it sounds like you're more interested in locales.

check out casparis in southwest pa. the actual trail to the upper boulder area is what I would consider easy to moderate requiring good ground clearance and 4 wheel drive but there are miles upon miles of extremely grueling trails. (be prepared to get lost without a topo). Oh yeah, and some great bouldering to!!! Its worth a trip for sure! Also on your way in you will pass lower casparis which offers some great bouldering opportunities as well as some good toproping and some extreme trad lines along the cliff. this is all part of the youghagehny river gorge that runs from ohiopyle to connellsville pa and is littered with boulders and clifflines.
