Just wondering how the area is in January...? Which areas are the best to visit? I'm coming from Western Mass...also thinking of LRC and possibly HP40....but Boone seems closest for a short week trip.


thanks...

Boone can be iffy that time of year. You may get perfect weather for bouldering or you may get snow and rain. Rumbling Bald near Asheville offers just as much bouldering and better temps/weather than Boone since it is several thousand feet lower in elevation. LRC and HP40 are always great winter options but as you stated are a little further. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions. Also feel free to hit me up if yo umake it down to NC. I'd be happy to show you guys around for a day or two.

I've been to the Bald plenty of times as I grew up in SC...but never made it to Boone but 2x and it was in the summer...

i know stone mtn is good in the winter...but i really wanna try and get to gmother and blowing rock....

i will definitely let you know if/when we are coming.

The weather has been mild lately, but that can change really quick. Gmom isn't usually a very good winter time spot, but Lost Cove is a really good option when it's colder, and is just down the road from gmom.
