I'm looking for someplace warm to climb in late February for a 5 day quick escape from the cold weather. I've read about Mt Lemmon, and it looks really interesting. I sport lead in the 5.10 range. Anyone have any advice as to where to start exploring there? There are a such a massive number of routes.... Thanks.

P.S. Any other recommendations for southern AZ?

There are tons of places to climb in Feb. Mountainproject is well organized for southern AZ, so dig through it. Lower mountain in the sun, will probably be your best bet, but I've climbed high on the mountain at that time of year as well (I'm also from MN so I have some cold tolerance). On Mt. Lemmon look at the Ruins, Sun Spot Crags, Control Tower/environs, Milagrosa Canyon and many others.

Also check out Cochise, The Dry, and The Mustang that are all in the area, but not on Mount Lemmon. Plenty to keep you busy for 5 days. Have fun and good luck.
