I'm setting out alone from San Francisco in early September, and returning in early November. Places on my wish list include:

  • Index
  • Leavenworth
  • Tensleep Canyon
  • Spearfish
  • Black Hills
  • Hueco Tanks
  • Flatirons
  • Rifle
  • Joes Valley
  • Zion
  • Red Rocks
  • Joshua Tree
  • Bishop Area
  • Yosemite / Tuolumne

But I don't really expect to make it to all of these - visiting fewer places for a longer time per place is more attractive to me. Recommendations and partners appreciated! I enjoy bouldering, sport, and trad, and have equipment for all the above. The most efficient route through the above is this. Hueco is obviously a massive detour. Is there anything else on the way that would make the trip worth it? If not, it's pretty tempting to eliminate it in favor of spending more time in other spots. Would this be a huge mistake?

If you're headed north to Washington, might as well stop by Smith for a few days. 

I'll be on a similar trip (though less areas) around the same time. If you're looking for a partner on easy/moderate trad let me know.

I'm leaning towards eliminating Washington, but won't rule it out. Which areas will you be visiting?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
