california! there are many places to climb year round, including yos. you just have to know where to look. i live in truckee. one heavy snow year I went on a recon mission and found that theres some sick shit only 1.5 hrs away. we put up a nice 9 pitch 10b and tons of single pitch stuff in middle of winter (jan), perfectly warm and happy. nobody in the tahoe/truckee area knows of this place, cuz they are too lazy to go hunt. people would freak if they knew. sooo close, so perfect in winter! about a 5 mile stretch of nothing but granite cliff, big faces and ridges , lots of jtree style cragging, shitloads of FAs still waiting, OMG.

climbing in winter is always more scarce. thats why winter is the time for recon missions and hiking loads. that way you'll be all set when the fruit (snow) melts. you gotta be lookin to find shit.

M- anytime. it is all there for the picking. it would be nice if more anchors were installed on the single pitch stuff.

maybe i'll post a topo for the ridge later.
