wesdyer Posted January 22, 2014 Share Posted January 22, 2014 It looks like I'll probably be moving to the bay area soon, specifically the peninsula (Palo Alto area). I am already starting to feel a longing for the mountains. What are the options for crag (trad or sport) climbing, alpine climbing, and other outdoor activities (I love trail running too)? I know that there is definitely world class climbing at Yosemite, but how far away is that really? Also, it seems like the Sierras might be reachable on the weekends. Is that true? Is there climbing close by that can be used more regularly for training etc. Furthermore, I love dreaming and planning my objectives for the next year. I have no idea where to start or what I should be thinking about especially in terms of alpine objectives. For reference, I was originally excited about doing Dragontail's Backbone ridge, the North Ridge of Mount Baker, and a trip to the Bugaboos this coming summer. Finally, are there any good places to meet other climbers in the bay area besides the local climbing gyms and whatever crags are close by. Thanks for the help. I already feel very sad about leaving my beloved Washington. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
