Hey all. Just got back, and thanks for all the advice.

Despite it raining and snowing most of the week, I had a great time. Spent a lot of time at the Roadside crag and military wall as they kept pretty dry. Had an amazing time

as the topic has changed slightly...

I'm now a huge fan of Miguel's. It's hard to beat $2 camping, $1.50 showers (8 minutes long, more than enough time), covered cooking area, cheap wi-fi, good pizza, and the amazing community that climbers bring.


Amazing Community? You better not have been one of those douches that were blabbing on about how drunk they were at 2am on Friday night.

I drive to the Red for Miguels! The fact that there is climbing nearby is just a little bonus.

I always hear conflicting reports about the pizza, and wonder if the raves are the result of climbers being ravenous scavengers after a day on the rock, or if it holds up on it's own. For example, how would it hold up against NY city pizza and the like?

Same goes for Ale 8 One. I have never sampled either.

Ale 8 is weird but strangely addictive. It's kind of like flat ginger ale. I really loved it.

I also thought the food was good, but not the best pizza I've ever had. Great value though.

Last Friday night or every Friday night? Seems I've never had a weekend at Miguel's that didn't end up with one of the following happening:

1) Drunk people yelling "I'm SOOOO drunk!"
2) Naked people in the cooking area. (Thank you St. Patrick's Day 2010)
3) Drunk people thinking my tent is their tent.
4) Drunk people thinking that they should yell at their buddy in the next tent for an hour.
5) Being parked in to your parking spot.

Actually, except for 2, all of these happen EVERY TIME I go to Miguel's. Once in the last year was enough. Never again will I camp there.

I find it interesting that people hate or love some camping areas. As far as the people using the facilities go, how would Miguel's compare to the MUA at the Gunks?

Most of the bullshit at Miguel's could be fixed if he just upped the camping to $5/night, but he seems to rather focus more on the restaurant, which brings in more money anyway.

End of rant.

FUCK that. Five bucks a night instead of two? If you wanna spend five bucks a night to camp come out to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, they will be more than happy to take your $5 to camp, as well as $5 to climb - and for the record, I got WAY more sleep at Miguel's than I ever have at $5 Horseshoe Canyon.

So, if it went up to $5/night, you would not come to Miguel's?

Thanks, you just proved my point.

Nice! I like it - actually not applicable though 'cause I'm not the one creating chaos, doing stupid shit or annoying others.

But by all means please go to Horseshoe - they need your business - and your $5.
