I'm taking my wife ( who doesn't climb or belay) and 14 year old that wants to climb up to City Of Rocks tomorrow for the first time. I have very little climbing experience other than setting up top ropes for my son in BCC and basically being his belay slave in the gym. I can belay a lead climber ( I took an introduction course through UMA and belayed my guide/instructor on a couple of pitches).

If someone wants to lead climb and set up a top rope for us in COR this weekend (we're there till Monday) I can belay you. We're camping at the Castle Rock campground by the way. Otherwise I am looking for TR routes in CORs where I can scramble to the top to set up the anchor (preferably a route with bolts at the anchor). Any info or suggestions on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Mountain Project has a cool feature that lets you search for a climbing area then you click the "Best climbs for You in this area" link in the middle of the page. You can select a difficulty range and toprope, sport, etc. I did a quick search for you and found a few in the 5.4-5.7 range.

so you want someone to guide you for free?

I'm not looking for a guide...I have a guideBOOK (and this app). Seeing if anyone wants to climb in CORs this weekend with us that can lead.

What do you care if someone takes him up on his request?

I appreciate you trying to help RKM and Roamin buffalo but my son can't lead or belay me (he's special needs). I do appreciate the route suggestions though, they might be something I can work with. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
