Hey, I'm trying to plan a 3-5 week climbing road trip with my girlfriend this summer. Would like to find a few good sport climbing areas that would provide 3-7 days worth of climbing any where in Western North America. Does anyone know of any place with decent temps / weather from late June to late July? Any suggestions would be helpful. We were already looking at Ten Sleep for 4-5 days.

Thanks

Small thing to add, but Baldwin Creek is about a million degrees in the summer and there's one whole tree to get shade. Sinks is pretty hot too, but you can climb fairly reasonably in the early morning or late afternoon. Around Lander, Wild Iris is probably your best bet in the summer.

Owens River Gorge, really? That place would be insanely hot in the summer. It's hot enough during the spring.

Hey, Just wanted to thank everyone for they're in put, it was a huge help. We ended up starting in Lander, WY, which was a great climber's town, climbing in Sinks and Wild Iris. Then we went up to Ten Sleep. Amazing. Then took a couple days off climbing to see Teton and Yellow Stone (was surprisingly underwhelmed by Yellowstone). From there we made our way to Maple Canyon in UT, which was also incredible, and eventually ended up in Yosemite and the Palisades. On the way home we spent four nights in Vegas, no climbing, just drinking and sweating.

Ten Sleep Canyon was by far our favorite place to climb, followed by Maple Canyon. Most climber friendly place: Lander, WY, by far. The guys at Wild Iris climbing shop were an endless source of good local beta, everything from where to climb at different times of the day to beat the heat in Sinks, to what to do on the 4th of July.

The trip was great. Thanks again
