It's to be 94 degrees @ 60% humidity this weekend. Which are the best crags at the NRG for super hot days?

Whipporwill. Climb out of the water. Fall into the water. Excellent for summer conditions. Anywhere at Summersville is going to be okay since you can alternate climbing with swimming in the lake. Also the crags at the South Side of the Meadow (Area 51, The Other Place, etc) remain mostly shaded during the hottest part of the day. Swimming possibilities also exist there.

As far as the gorge itself, Endless is in the shade in the morning, Kaymoor is shaded in the afternoon.

edit for spelling
