tahquitz/suicide best times

I am from NJ.  I may have a chance to climb a couple of days at Tahquitz and Suicide.  Maybe 1 day at each location.  I was told May is a great month to go but that may not work out for me.  Any advice on best time?  If not May, June looks fine from what I read and researched.  It really looks like May-Sept would be fine, albeit maybe a bit hot at times but certainly do-able.  Keep in mind I am used to climbing through the hot humid Gunks summer.

Any advice appreciated.  Thanks.

I've climbed in the summer up there a bunch of times. It can get a little hot, yes, but it's a dry heat so probably was better than the worst-case Gunks scenario. Plus, there are a lot of routes at least at Tahquitz that get very little sun.

June would be good. South Face climbs can get pretty warm. As important as which month, is trying to climb on weekdays when the masses are at work or in school.

Summer gets hot, but start early and stay in the shade.  Tahquitz is generally cooler than Suicide.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
