I am looking at doing a trip to NRG from May 20th to the 30th. I am wondering from someone familiar with the area if this would be a good time to go. Also I am wondering anything special I should know about planning my trip (places to avoid, where to camp, etc).

Thank you for your time,
Ryan

This is actually a fantastic time to go, especially considering that it is during right the New River Rendevouz, which is a great opportunity to get to know the climbing in the NRG. Even if you don't attend any of the events, you'll probably run into a lot of climbers. You can find more information here

In terms of camping, there are currently a number of options, with Roger's probably being the most popular (at least until the AAC opens up their campground in the near future). I can't really think of any areas to outright avoid, although you may find a number of the more accessible crags to be quite busy on weekends with large groups top-roping many of the classics, most notably in the bridge area crags and the Junkyard walls. I would also suggest buying the new Mike Williams guide. If you have any questions as to specific areas to hit up, have at it! Hope you enjoy it!

Maybe rainy but definitely a great time to climb :)
