hi
me and my brother are going climbing in june/juli. where is the best place to go, that have good boulders and a lot of sport climbing routes? with easy access, we dont have a car. so if anybody is going climbing and want to show us where it is let us know. we are above average climbers.

[sarcasm]yeah, Yosemite is an awesome place with a lot of sport climbing since that is what the OP is looking for. [/sarcasm]

there's not too much sport in yosemite. but if you want sport and bouldering, southern california is where it's at. you have the santa monica mountains, joshua tree, and if want, it's only a five hour drive to bishop where some of the bouldering in the world is. I'm going to be in agoura hills for the summer if you guys want me to show you around

Well, actually, Yosemite park has a lot of bolted climbs. If you go up to Tuolumne, which is where you would want to climb in July, anyway, there are lots of bolted routes. Some are runout (so might not be called sport), but many are not. The easier climbs are mostly runnout. But there are plenty of well bolted 12's and 13s.

I don't boulder, but there seems to be a pretty active boulder scene.

this is true. although, yosemite is mostly known for it's trad and big wall climbing. lots of bouldering in the valley as well.
