Now that snow/winter is upon us, what are the best areas in LCC to continue climbing? Also some in BCC?
To clarify, sport climbing in the .10's and .11's.

Partial thread hijack - also areas with trad up to the low 11s (9s and 10s ideal).

The route in it's entirety.

For LCC anywhere from the Bong Eater to the Dragon Arch see's good sun all winter. That about covers both your questions minus the sport climbing stuff.

For Spurt climbing, the S-Curves can be sunny and nice in the winter. Probably the best stone in the Wasatch too ;)

Aquaworld/Aqueduct seem warmer, less windy, and drier than s-curves in the winter. The south facing fergies cliffs are decent winter crags too. +1 for bongeater.

For both trad and sport, there are many days when Psychobabble and Bumble Bee Wall are dry. Both face due south. The Red Rock Wall should also be good to go when things dry out.

Why I do it...

I hear Momentum is dry this time of year. Be sure to get yer flu shot, it can be crowded.

I think Melting Mud Wall in East Hellgate will be enjoyable on sunny days. Good idea to bring wpb hiking boots for the approach and a tarp, but the limestone and all day sun.. that's gotta be a sick contrast to the touron Utardians riding magic carpets and groomers across the canyon.

The altitude works both ways.. colder temps but stronger sun. Pretty sure you can climb there most days with a light fleece layer
