weather is generally approaching pristine- 60s, maybe even 70s outside, south facing routes are warm and pleasant. could be warm enough to consider east facing routes as well.

route ideas are tough to give without knowing what you're looking for. sport/trad/grade, etc, etc.

I would like to do a couple of the long 5.9-5.10 classics trad or sport. The rest of the time we will probably crag. I am going with someone whos has been there before, but not in winter.

Your post above has got me psyched!

Thanks for the information.

long 5.10 classic- Eagle Dance or Black Orpheus would be a good choice, sunny, warm, and super long.

Hot Fudge Thursday, Sunflower, and Sundog are also good 5.9 options.

Beluah's Book to Sunflower or Sundog makes a good long 5.9 outing.

Ringtail/Mountain beast is another option.

cragging- all the good sport except the Black Corridor will be in the sun for the most part- Gallery, Wall of Confusion, Stratocaster will all be warm and pleasant.
