More information:
I like day-trips to Squamish, cragging at Index, Darrington, or long alpine days car-to-car that are drivable from the Seattle/Bellingham area.

I go on a few 3-day to week-long climbing road trips each year, different seasons, in locations like Smith Rock, Trout Creek, Zion, Yosemite, Indian Creek, Red Rock, Wind River Range, etc.

Haven't been, but would love to go to the Bugaboos or the High Sierra.
