I usually hit the desert sandstone sometime in October. Lots of gear/experience maybe shunes or something unknown if you're like-minded. There are some cool rocks just south of Zion for example. 11 leads if my shoulder feels good.
Location flexible if your schedule is likewise. Could hit RR on the way but the camping there sucks so bad...
Currently camped out near Bishop; waiting for the temps to lower a bit.
