I may have a chance to go to Tucson late October or early November this year.  From what I can gather that is a decent and doable time to climb in the area.  I was thinking Mt. Lemmon and Cochise Stronghold. Maybe 2 days in each locale. 

I am primarily a Gunks climber - I can lead 5.5 there and follow up to 5.6 or 5.7.  In Red Rock I followed 5.8 with no issues.  Do these areas sound good for that time of year and my climbing level?  From what I can see it looks like it is do-able.  Looking to do easy/moderate trad.

I was thinking of getting a guide for a few days if I can't find partners. Can anyone recommend a guide service?  These guys looked pretty good to me http://www.pangaeamountainguides.com/index.html

Thanks.

Yes, the weather for climbing is quite nice around that time of year. Yes you will find fun and scenic easy/moderate climbs in your grade range on Mt Lemmon and Cochise. Yes, Pangaea would be a good choice for a guide service.

The stronghold is legit, get your slab game up dude.
