Heading to The Red this weekend for a few days and man it looks hot and humid. I would appreciate any recommendations for crags that stay shady and out of the sun. I know the guidebook has some beta on that was well, but welcome any recommendations from those in the know. Thanks. Chris Massey

Will have a rack, but probably climbing mostly sport. Wide range of climbers, but generally looking for 5.9 thru easier 5.12s. Thanks. Chris Massey

The guidebook gives really good topos that show clifflines and sun/shade exposure. Or hit me up at Miguel's tonigjht or in the morning and we can discuss in person. Eric Carlos

Yup, the guidebook is going to be your best bet, but I remember Military, Emerald City, Dip, and Phantasia being pretty well in the trees and all have moderate to easy stuff on them. Dip and Emerald have good first trad leads on them too.

Just keep in mind 9B is closed, so it's a long road hike to Dip Wall trailhead (few miles IIRC). Or bring a bike. Brian L.

Sunnyside in Muir. Not really sunny at all. Exact range of climbs you are looking for. Also good in the rain. Parker Wrozek

Sunnyside and Emerald City being described as 'Shady Crags'? That's a new one to me! Deep End at Miller Fork is perma shady and has good routes in the 5 10-5.12 range. Shawnee Shelter is shady as well. In general most walls are shady at some point in the day. DrRockso

It faces north/northwest. It gets some sun really late in the day. Just spent an entire hot and humid day there. Parker Wrozek

Emerald city might be one of the worst choices at the Red when it's hot out. It faces south, bakes in the sun, and most of the routes rise above the trees. I've been there when it's in the low sixties and I thought it was too hot to climb there. The Zoo is pretty shady, on the other hand. Cocoapuffs 1000

I was at the zoo yesterday and it was nice. This morning we were at the great wall, also good. Roadside is shady in the morning. At PMRP we went to the courtusey wall and then the gallery in the afternoon. Both shady with good climbing. jonathan.lipkin
