Hi, In in Washington for work from October to mid November, i was wondering if many people day trip to the NRG or is it a sat/sun weekend trip ...

It's a 5 hour drive. So definitely a weekend trip (I personally wouldn't go out there for anything less than a 3 day weekend, but maybe other people have better driving tolerances).

Decent day trips for sport climbing include Elizabeth Furnace (pretty easy, 1-1.5 hour drive), Safe Harbor, PA (2.5 hours), Manchester wall in Richmond, Birdsboro PA. None of those are as good as the New, but they are a lot closer.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
