Summers a long time away but when you head up you can join me. I only lead sport routes but I'm more than willing to be the clean up man on trad routes and who knows by summer I might be leading trad Jon Powell

What is this talk of summer? You guys are talking about the same Georgia that I am right? Where it's a billion degrees and 1000% humidity from May to September? Ryan Williams

lol I was thinking the same thing. Summer time in the Southeast is gym/training season or traveling out west / north. Dustin Drake

Im down in Orlando. I climb everything (trad, sport, boulder)! The longer the route the better in my opinion. Let me know if you want to climb WadeM

see you in early summer at the Red? It's usually not too bad in June, before the bugs and humidity hit for next 2 months. Woodchuck ATC

The NC high country is fine in the Summer, especially if you are coming from Alabama, Georgia, or Tennessee's scorching temps and high humidity. From Florida, all the much better.

Overnight lows in the mid sixties, even during the height of Summer....Manageable temps during the day if chasing shade. Laurel Knob is perfect for this. The Blue Ridge crags would also be nice. Whitesides is another valid option.

The high country yes, but I can't say the same for LK or any of the stuff in that part of the state. I've climbed on LK in Sept and by 3pm the rock was too hot to climb. I wouldn't even think of climbing there in summer - not during the day time anyway.

Well, I guess hot is relative....and, yes, timing is important.

Dillard Canyon, for example, is shady for all but two hours of the day....Great face and crack lines abound. Hide in the rhodos for lunch, then swith to the other side of the canyon.

If you get in early enough to the main portion of LK, you can move along the main face in the shade for much of the morning. Take a long break, then start again in the afternoon. You are sort of relegated to staying lower on the main face as the upper part does get toasty but, with a breeze, I find it to be very manageable.
