Where should I take a sport climbing trip to? (From Denver)

Yo mp!

I have some time off around Thanksgiving and would like to explore some new areas to sport climb. I'm comfortable leading up to 5.9, maybe some 5.10's, and have taken trips to Shelf Road and Ten Sleep.

I'm looking to check out a new area that will not dip below 40 degrees at night, has some great sport climbing available, and hopefully some cool scenery to hike around in as well. Leaning towards New Mexico or Utah, but am all ears for suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Wow, that looks amazing! Last thing I should have mentioned; hopefully no more than 6-8 hours away. Definitely marking Owens River Gorge on the must climb list!

FYI, Utah is going to be sub 40 at night everywhere. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
