Hi everyone, I'm looking for some info on bouldering in the western U.S. The time frame is late august to late november, and I'm wondering where to go. The places that have peaked the interest of me and my climbing partner so far are Colorado and California, specifically RMNP and Bishop. We've heard that bishop will be too hot until late September, and have no info on what a good time to visit RMNP is. We both climb around V5 and I'm currently projecting a V7 here in New Engand. We're looking to travel for about two months, any info, tips, etc would be much appreciated. Oh and how much cash would be suggested to go on a two month trip? thanks.

You'll still be chasing shade in Bishop, even in late September. Moneywise, if you could postpone the trip until November, it's cheap and easy. It's all BLM land, and while there are pay camp sites, I normally just drive up into the Buttermilks and rough it. There's groceries in town, a couple descent places to eat and a smattering of hotels from cheapish to not so cheapish. Plus you're close to the Mammoth areas and all the other lesser travelled outlying Bishop crags that are at higher elevation and are climbable sooner on.

Good luck
