My wife and i are moving to Lodi at the end of the month (currently in Sonora, im not excited about the move) and i was trying to figure out where to transplant my climbing time. I have not climbed at granite arch but i have been there for YCL Climbing Competitions when i helped out with my local climbing team, i have heard good things about pipework but they seem to be more expensive. i thought about Stonehenge in modesto, its actually closer than granite arch, but i am not sure just yet.

anyhow, looking for someone who if familiar with the gyms and doesnt mind partnering up with someone who stuggles with 5.10's. i have no prob belaying for project routes, i can lead belay and i have draws but no rope yet.

I live in Lodi, but have never gym climbed in 30 years of climbing, I do not do the indoor thing well, not my thing. In Lodi you at least got good Thai, Mexican, and Viet. Food. Lots of good typical restaurants too. Wineries that rival the coastal valleys but cheaper, good Spanish varietals. Good but flat road biking right out the door and good mountain biking 45 minutes away. Nearest climbing is a small tiny crag and a tiny bit of bouldering around Hogan and then up Hwy 4 and 108 as know. No gyms in town but I think a kid that is a painter in town goes up to the gyms, not many climbers in this town. Time to get a bike.

I started indoors, it was a serious hamper to developing creativity in finding a way through routes.

Thanks for the heads up on food. I dont have a bike but I will probably be making trips up the hill on my sport bike more often.

Hogan is just outside of Valley Springs and down from SanAndres about 10 miles . If the rain keeps up the rocks may go under water.

Oh, I know the area a little. Some good riding roads out there. Too bad climbing and sportbikes in the same day is hell on the forearms. Lol

I think we are ping to join Stonehenge climbing gym, it's closer and cheaper than the gyms in Sac.
