      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The best spot to go for the $

Recommended Posts

Name the the best spot to travel too, "not in the USA", where the climbing is amazing, the food/drink is cheap as hell, getting there won't kill your wallet, girls, and most important the climbing?

depends on the kind of climbing, i guess. i went to peru for a month of alpine fun for $1100, including plane ticket. spent 19 out of 28 days climbing, saw some local ruins, and the people were nice. it was fun enough and affordable enough that i'm planning another trip.

Kyrgyzstan... it's got it all: BIG wall & alpine. No 8k peaks, but Pobedy on the border with China at 7,439M (24,407') is the shiz. Lots of bang for the buck compared to their unit of currency, the som (pronounced "soam") - the average per capita income is 90USD/month.

 

...getting there won't kill your wallet...

 

OK, granted you're lookin' at 1,500USD to get there and back.

 

To comply with that stricture... go to Mexico.

Not sure if you consider this "not in the USA" per se.

Squamish!

1) You CAN DRIVE THERE

2) YOU CAN BRING ALL YOUR OWN FOOD AND CAMP

3) In season - lots if international flavor

4) Ridiculous climbing

 

Outside US - I've heard Mexico but can't vouch for it personally

An international ticket will run you >$700 most of the time unless you've got FF milescool.gif/other hookups. Add a couple hundred for other fees.

 

It won't be as cheap as Bolivia or Peru, but Argentina's pretty damn cheap, has excellent climbing (look up Refugio Frey) and will soon be going up in price as their economy gets back off the ground. Unless some nast job interferes I'm planning to be there for March and most of April.

 

You can easily drive to Utah and climb your ass off for less than that.

Why the fuck would you bring all your own food to Squamish when Canadian food is cheaper than American by 30-50%? Save money, buy Canadian.

Yeah, but you have to eat "Biftek", Poutine, and weird shit like that. hellno3d.gif

 

So, regarding the original question, do you want to rock climb or snow slog or what?

Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. Cheap to get there: $400 roundtrip. Bushwackers are great!! Girls in bikinis and you have beautiful granite boulder on the beach. Get too hot, go snorkeling, towel off, boulder some more.

 

Best honeymoon I've ever taken!!

That place sounds all good but is there any routes to climb? I couldn't find much info on the climbing there other than a few bouldering sites. Don't get me wrong, I love bouldering but I wouldn't mind getting off the ground.
