If you had 2-4 weeks in June to climb and were mostly interested in single pitch 5.12-5.13 sport routes, where would you go?? Where are weather conditions most likely to be cooperative??

I'm graduating from grad school and want to take a little celebratory climbing vacation before settling into the full time work force... advice on best location??

Ten Sleep. Just make sure you pack some heat if you get up in the middle of the night. Wild Iris is another option, but Ten Sleep is many times better IMO.

Maple and/or Rifle for steep.

Wyoming is great if you like vert pockets.

ducking ropes at Copper

+1 for Rifle. Not many other places around with that many 5.12 5.13 sport routes, plus you are very close(a few hours) to the Black if you get bored in Rifle. Not to mention Colorado Weather is actually somewhat predictable that time of year. Not crazy hot yet and if its going to rain its only gonna be a couple hours in the afternoon and probably be dry by 5 for some nice evening sends.

Conditions at Rumney won't be ideal in June. There will be some good days but you will more likely experience seepage and bugs. Best month for Rumney is October.

Get your send on at lime kiln canyon. New book comes out in march. There's gotta be at least 75 5.12-14 s that are 250' long each. No crowds, pretty much an oasis. Virgin river gorge is right up the road. Def perfect June weather. I've been there in late may and gotten snowed on.

^^^^ -1 on that!

June will NOT be sending weather at either of these crags. At least not 99% of the time. Average hi/low in Mesquite for June is 102/64. That is not sending weather...even if the Grail is ~1500' higher and in the shade. And the VRG...will be even hotter.

Folks keeping talking about crappy conditions at Rumney in June, I guess that's nice to keep the crowds down...

It would certainly appear that I was already considering all the best places, so I appreciate the votes of agreement. Decisions, decisions... Thanks all! :)

Europe if you have the money, Spain, Sardinia, endless amazing sport climbing and great people and food and something a little different, spoil yourself after grad school. If not I'd go Wyoming. Really amazing weather in Wyoming in June, cold mornings, warm afternoons, chance of a thunderstorm and fairly chilly nights, and really long days, take a good bag and enjoy the hell out of it.

Well, I guess Rumney is okay in June if you like climbing in a wet sauna. Rifle I'd say if the winter wasn't too wet.

The Black Hills including Spearfish Canyon, Victoria Canyon, Mt. Rushmore and the Iron Mt. areas. We do have afternoon thunder storms here but the temperatures are mild and there isn't any waiting in line. Greater than 1500 routes graded between 5.8 and 5.14 with tons of 5.10 - 5.12 and virtually no waiting in line. All of the areas are within an hour of each other with both granite and limestone rock. Tensleep and Wild Iris are four and six hours away.
