OK, our Yosemite trip is planned, we'll be out there from Sunday August 7th to Fri August 12th. It will be hot, but that's when we're in California...will probably head to Tuolumne. Bought a book called "Tuolumne Topropes" which had some, albeit limited, climbing possibilities for us, including which areas were safe for kids to hang out around.
Was wondering if any west-coast gunks.com'ers or their friends are available to spend a day climbing for a day or two? I'd love a tour guide. I'd like to spend 1 or 2 days away from the family and doing multi-pitch and another day top-roping with the family. The rest of the week is for hiking and such... Any recommendations on where to find partners for Yosemite climbing? Last time I was there, I climbed for a day with the guy who answered the phone at the rock shop when I called to ask where to find partners.
If you can't be a good example, then you'll have to be a horrible warning.
