Hey guys, so im currently working in the USA on a J1 visa as a climbing instructor! My job finishes on the 24th of august and I then have exactly 30 days to travel (and climb) as much of america as I can...... on a budget!

Suggestions as to how/where would be awesome!


Thanks,

In the words of the Village People, go west.

Wyoming will probably be good, hot, but Devil's Tower always has shade somewhere. The Tetons are an alpine range on the other side of the state, perfect for that.

Further south to Colorado and S Dakota etc and it might be too hot. I have been to Yosemite around then and it was bearable, Tuolomne Meadows nearby will be perfect though. The deserts and J-Tree etc won't be bearable. You could head into the high sierras though.

You might get a better response in Rock Destinations. And being more specific will help too, it's a big place.

In reply to Jonny2vests: Hey jonny, thanks very much for your ideas. Im working on the east coast in PA so the west coast is a bit of a treck- but well worth doing? (this is my first time in the USA)

Thanks again!

Ok, don't know the east that well. The Gunks can't be too far away.

The trek is worth it if only for the adventure.

East coast:

Red river gorge, ky
new river gorge, wv
Seneca, wv
Gunks, ny
Adirondacks, ny
Whitehorse/cathedral ledge, white mountains, nh

Enough climbing at each of those for 30 years. Except Seneca maybe.
They will all be HOT!

Alan Rubin will be along in a mo to give you some proper advice.
