Topic - Western Canada & NW USA

Rog Wilko on 07 Jan 2013
I haven't been to USA for 10 years. One reason for this is that I don't like being treated like a criminal when I arrive somewhere as a visitor. I've never been to Canada. I'm toying with the idea of going over to western Canada, hiring a motorhome and touring around the south of BC and crossing over to Washington and Oregon. I'd anticipate doing a bit of easy climbing (Smith Rock looks worth a visit) now and then. We're not really up for anything more than VS/HVS, and we like well protected trad (with holds, don't really like granite friction climbing) or properly bolted sport routes. Don't do big walk-ins any more
I could do with some advice from the great UKC human database:

1. When's a good time to go for weather etc.?
2. Do tourists crossing the border from Canada get decent treatment?
3. Where might we climb?
4. Anyone had experience of hiring a motorhome over there?
