Help with trip planning AZ and UT

This june, I will be in Arizona and / or Utah for about 6 - 7 days. After looking around on the internet and reading some guide books, I feel like a kid in a candy store! There is so much beautiful stuff to see! Sadly, I only brought $1 to this candy store (my 6-7 days time limit), so I will need some help picking out destinations and trip ideas.

So far, things that ...

I'm heading back to Boise from Vegas in about a week. I plan on camping a night at Cave Lake near Ely, NV. Anyone know of any good bouldering spots near this area? or any between Ely and Jackpot?

Vegas Baby Vegas!!!

I'm off on a guy trip to Vegas this weekend and I would like to get in a quick desert peak on one of the days. I've been up to Mount Charleston many times and I'm looking for something different. I don't want to drive more than 45 minutes either. A little one would be fine. Thanks!

Route by Spare Rib in Red Rocks

When we decided to not wait for three parties ahead of us on Crimson, we went for Spare Rib (or so we thought). We got on a route one buttress to the left of Crimson, but I believe Spare Rib is one buttress to the East. Anyway, all went as expected until I finished the 3rd pitch and expected 5.4 to the top. Instead, there was a line of bolts up a blankish varnished face. ...

Shameless plug for Bob Sumner

I've never met him, but Bob Sumner and I share much in common starting with our age and our peakbagging goals. I've seen his name in more than a hundred registers over the years in CA and NV and we've probably been atop more than 500 of the same summits. I've exchanged emails with him to discuss approach routes to remote peaks in the Sierra as he seems to like long day hikes as much ...

Red Rock in late may - too hot?

What do you think? We climbed there in early March when it was cold so all routes in shady canyons are still to be climbed.

Wheeler Peak: April 2010 Conditions

Planning to lead a group from TX through the southern Sangres a week from thurdsay (April 29th) and was hoping some of you fine New Mexicans could help me out with some current trail conditions. More specifically La Cal Basin. From what I understand the good lord is blessing the area with some showers so deep snow, rain and a basin campsite might not be ideal. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Santa Fe Area Hikes

We will be down in Santa Fe this weekend and would like to get some snow free hikes in. Any good 6-8 mile RT hikes in the surrounding areas that would be good for mid April?
