I'm a German climber who stay in Michigan for studying. My question is now if there is good conditions for climbing at thanksgiving in the gorge, and if there are many people/ easy to find a climbing partner.

If someone is interested let me know, leading around 5.12-5.13.

You can definitely climb there around this time. You will want to chase the sun!

What's the common way to sleep at this time? Is there a possibility for stay in the tent?

Last year we were there for the whole week.  It's a GREAT time if the weather conditions hold out.  

Camp at Lago Linda's if you like it quiet, or Miguel's if you want a bit more of a party.

Miguel's has their big thanksgiving dinner, which you absolutely have to go to. The crags are relatively quiet, but you'll have no trouble finding american misfits shirking their families and foreigners to climb with.  

Dunno where you're studying, but we're in Ann Arbor and will be heading down the weekend before thanksgiving, but not climbing quite that hard.  I think I know of some other folks from the area that will be heading down for thanksgiving if you want help finding a partner.

Hey, I might be heading to the red over thanksgiving as well if anyone is interested in joining me. I'm mostly wanting to get on 12s and maybe project table of colors.

Hey anyone heading down the weekend before Thanksgiving (11/17-11/20)?? I’m hoping to get down and would love to join up with a group.  I’m open to get on pretty much anything
