Any thoughts on getting another climbing trip in for the long weekend? I have 4 days off and would love to head somewhere. Don't know where though! That's where this comes in handy :)

Hey Dre,Weather looks great at City. Have fun. I would definitely want to do this next year in warmer overnight weather.
hello, so i would love to get back into climbing if you guys don't mind a somewhat beginner climber. If it's ok to join where and when exactly are you guys heading. Patty

Extended forecast for The City is looking better; I'm looking to go as long as the forecast stand, and can find someone to go with.Created a cross event for this in the other climbing meetup.http://www.meetup.com/Greater-Seattle-Rock-Climbing/events/152024372/

Just moved to Seattle and am itching to climb outside. I have Thanksgiving plans already, but would be down to go to Smith Rocks on Friday (29th) - Sun. Since I would have to drive by myself though, I think City of Rocks is a little too far. I would also be down for Vantage (Frenchman's Coulee).
Would love to see who else here is down for something a little closer?

I'm pushing for The City, as long as its sunny/partly cloudy. Looking to leave Wednesday 27, mid afternoon.

I'll be down at Smith Wednesday thru Monday for the Thanksgiving holiday. I love the City of Rocks- love it. But Thanksgiving can be pretty cold there. Of course both Smith and the City are high mountain desert. Which means snow can easily come during the shoulder season months. But if you have sunshine and low winds, both are definitely claimable even if temps don't rise above 40! The key difference in the two areas is elevation. Smith: 3000. The City: 6000+! This is why the City can be a bit more fickle and brutal. I've had a solid week of snow at the City in late May- and two weeks later in June I've been way too sweltering to climb. It's weird like that. But if you luck out, the City beats Smith in beauty, quality wilderness feeling camping, and fewer crowds.

Thanks for all this info Erik. Your experience is much appreciated.

I'm not really organizing this--I just joined the comment thread to say I'll definitely be at Smith (I will be climbing with my sister and her husband for the five days--but happy to share belays and set ropes for any familiar Seattle faces that make it down there).

Just wondering who is organizing this? If we're going to a place like Red Rocks, we should probably start planning since there's airline tickets and accommodations to think about.
I checked out the routes at City of Rocks and they looked awesome.Will it be cold though?

City of rock is only 12 hours or less if you drive like me, it should be dry over there and its worth the gas to go for four days. Trust me!!!
I'm with you on this one.
If you're looking to stay local, Smith Rock is probably your best bet on something that will be dry and relatively warm in November. Red Rocks (near Las Vegas) is always a great choice for cheap flights and desert sun.

I'm interested! New to the area so I can't offer much advise as to where!
