Twin Falls climbing this weekend - worth hauling gear?

I'll be in Twin Falls this weekend and debating bringing gear to climb. We are coming in from out of state to jump, and already have a load of gear. We won't have time to get to CoR, most likely.

The forecast I saw seemed like a high in the mid-80s but I read that the main area at Dierkes Lake was like a solar oven. While I love the dry heat, climbing basalt in full sun in the mid-80s might be a bit warm-ish. Certainly getting up early or climbing late in the day is possible.

Thoughts, suggestions, comments? Thanks in advance!

Dierke's alcove starts to get in the shade by noon. Nearby Skunk Cave is shady all day. Early am good for bouldering as well. Hope that helps!

Thank you! I appreciate the thoughts(and the guidebooks you wrote!). Packed a rope & gear, it will be fun.
