  • ok, actually looking for the best mid-longish sub 5.12 climbs between western colorado, utah, and nevada basically. Also, being climbable in mid november is essential. Thanks much

Define "mid-longish". 5 pitches? 7 pitches? Sounds like you want to go to Red Rocks.

At least 3 pitches,longer is better, red rocks is sounding like the place to go I was just kind of wondering how the classics in this range there stacked up against the classics in say zion and the rest of the desert. Definitely trad, although the sport/trad mix of red rocks sounds nice.

RR is nice because you've got so many options. I'm not very familiar with Zion, but I can only think of one legit sport multi there (mountainproject.com/v/made-to-be-broken/105967843). RR - your options are limitless.

Zion is great that time of year. Though shune's buttress is one of the classics, it is in full shade, unfortunately. There are plenty of sunny routes to do in Zion, so don't be discouraged! Red Rocks is great, too. Primrose dihedrals and sisyphus in canyonlands are in full sun. If the road is still open, then I think they are one of the best to climb in UT.

Once we landed we headed to Font to find a place to stay for the night before doing a day of wine tasting and heading to Buoux.

The Promise Land
Goes at 5.11 A0 by pulling on a bolt here and there.
Though it is at about 9,000 feet, it is in the sun most of the day and if it is 65-70 in Albuquerque and not windy, it will be spectacular up there.
