Got a climbing partner for this trip, yet? :)

Flatirons in Colorado?

New Hampshire probably isn't far enough, unfortunately -- but Whitehorse and Cathedral Ledge provide some awesome multi-pitch trad (up to about 1100 ft) on solid granite, and you're not far from 5-star sport in Rumney. But, probably you could drive there more easily than fly, so doesn't use up that credit.

No partner and seems like my partners might not be interested. are you up for a trip to Yosemite? I was thinking Thursday August 29 - Monday September 2nd (Labour day weekend)
Air Canada has cheap flights to San Diego, drive time is roughly the same as LA but cheaper to fly to San Diego (at present its about 610 return on AC, direct flights both ways) and you avoid LA, its people and traffic (sorry LA'rs sure there are some great folks there but ya, you know).

We could meet up at Val David and Montagne D'argent and other places prior to climb.

I've been to Rumney and love it, its my favourite style of sport climbing, but you're right it wouldn't use the credit, Flat Irons look beautiful but "every thought that stung a knot in my mind, I might go insane if it couldn't be sprung..." and now, with my Myopic eyes, I can't see past the Valley and Meadow

I'll send you a private message on this...

Also: Do you really want to spend just the labor day weekend? It's going to be a zoo, there will be lineups and passing if you stick to the valley.

Don't forget to give yourself time for Tuolumne? I found it to be infinitely nicer than the valley, much quieter, way more routes, some exploring (longer approaches though)

I was in the valley last labor day weekend and the following week. We climbed some very classic climbs; E Buttress of Middle, Central Pillar, NE Buttress of Higher, RNWF of HD...never shared any of these climbs with more than one other party and we never waited to get on any of them. I know this might not be normal for a holiday, but we were pleasantly surprised. Might have also had something to do with all the Hanta! The ony bad thing was that it was a little warm, but Tuolumne was cooler. And I agree, don't miss out on Tuolumne; way quieter, awesome climbing.

My last trip, I begged my friends to leave the valley. I couldn't handle the noise, the people, it drove me batty.

After 3 days of unending madness (it seemed), we left for 2 days in tuolumne and then 3 days in Bishop.

squamish ... many moderate multi pitch trad lines ... tons of trad cragging ... decent sport ... sbucks is 5 min away from the crag .... not to hot ...

and most importantly your data plan will also work as its in canada .... so you can RC all day from the chief Wink
