Where would you go?

I have a short ~2 week christmas break from school and want to travel from the northeast (the ice usually isn't reliable that early in the season). Ideally I would like to go somewhere near an airport because renting a car is super expensive (I'm 21).

Red rock is a solid choice, but when I was there we had a car. It seems like I would be hitch hiking to and from the climbing areas.

If your looking for ice and don't want to rent a car. Ouray seems like a no brainier to me... You can fly into grand junction, take a bus to Ouray and walk to all the climbing, food, and beer your heart desires. Unless you are looking for something cheap, i.e. Camping?

T-wall in Chattanooga TN. You'd have to hitchhike or take a cab/uber to get to T-wall but once you're there you can camp for free and hike about 20min to to cliff
