Looking for recommendations and sun/shade info on climbing around Durango this summer to stay cool. What's the aspect of the Watch Crystal? Best recommendations for shady crags?

It's been so hot everywhere. Golf Wall & East A get morning shade. Cascade is mostly sun but gets intermittent shade, but the pool area is generally nice and cool. One half of Lemon gets morning shade and the other half gets afternoon shade. Ouray and Telluride probably have the better selection of summer crags in the region.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
