Anyone know if it's good to climb this time of year? I'll be down over thanksgiving visiting family. Want to check out spots around the chico area......let me know if there's anything else around worth checking out.

If you do some internet searching on the Grizzly dome you can find all about the other routes along the road to it and to the right of the main wall. A great place to take people new to leading and mulitpitch, make sure they have at least a little knowledge of friction climbing.

Not to completely violate guideline #1, but I felt that most of the routes here--especially the ones on the far right (not necessarily posted here as of this writing)--were some of the stupidest bolt jobs I've ever seen. Not to say the actual climbing on the routes was bad (some quite fun), but the often-retarded bolt placements were truly head scratchers.
As for the comment about this being a great place for new leaders, ummm...in general not really.
