Planning a climbing trip in november coming from Victoria, BC and our usual climbing spot in Squamish tends to be pretty rainy.

Any advice for good dry areas in november? Some ideas have been Vantage (frenchmens coulee), Kamloops or possibly Skaha (pendicton).

What kind of climbing are you looking for? Sport or trad? Grades?

I think the obvious winner that time of year in the Northwest would be Smith Rocks (Oregon). Skaha is nice as well. Both are large area with plenty to do both trad and sport. Smith also has some great multi-pitch.

make sure you check the skaha parking lot closing date ...

squamish REALLY depends on the forecast ... the bluffs dry out every quickly ... ive climbed the chief in november ..

the last few novembers/decembers ive gotten around 10 days of climbing in each month ...
