/ Where to go in May?
The slabs down by the sea on the west coast of Portland, or San Vito lo Capo.
Or certain crags in Provence near Buis Les Baronnies.
I'm sure there are many more but particularly remember Sierra de Toix, Montessa and Guadalest as having nice easy climbs
I'll be climbing in the Llieda area (with own transport) and you're welcome to join me. I can collect from a Barcelona airport.
Auzat in the Ariège would fit the bill well. It's granite with a lot of square-cut edges and often has a choice of sun or shade. The easiest routes tend to be bolted for very nervous climbers! Plenty of limestone and gneiss options nearby too for variety.
