So as a teacher, I usually try really hard to not work in the summer but it seems this upcoming year will require it. Anybody got ideas about where one can work part-time and not be far from some good rock? Long multipitch regions preferred.

You could try getting a service industry job in Yosemite Valley.

If you're up to heading east for a few months....hit up the Red River Gorge in KY. Miguels is always looking for workers, as some just plain give up and quit after 2 months lately. Cheap living, great food, sweet job and superb sport and trad climbing on Corbin Sandstone. Multi-pitch might be no more than 2-3 pitches though. But a sweet environment and community.

Camp host at any number of Forest Service campgrounds. Most are contracted out so it can be tough trying to figure out what company runs which campgrounds.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
