Trying to decide where we want to travel to next year. We'll have 2 weeks and we want to climb in an awesome area: where would you go?

If I could climb 11s and 12s I would go to the Grampians in Australia. that place looks amazing.

Yosemite?
I spent a week there at the beginning of august and it was awesome.
Definitely all it is hyped up to be and more. Lots a great climbing and a lot of things to do on your rest days.
If you've never been there before, I would strongly recommend it.
Cheers,
Raymond

Trad, Sport, Bouldering, aid, bigwall?
Steep, crimpy, slabby, juggy?
long, short?
In US, outside US?


All of the above?

Come on, spit it out!

In the US-
Yosemite, I was there for two days this summer (i know only two days, damn family road trip apperently what everyone else wanted to do was more important that my need to climb) It was sooo amazing not to mention the most gorgeous placeI have ever been.

Outside the US-
Australia, Im not sure where but all the climbing there looks amazing!!

I would fly to Vegas, rent a car, and stay and climb in red rocks for 2 or 3 days. Then head to Flagstaff (3 hours from Vegas) and climb at paradise forks for 3 or 4 days,(you can top rope almost every route there(if needed)). Once you've got the spliters a little bit dialed, head to Indian Creek for the rest of the trip,(awesome place for rest days as well;petrogliphs everywhere). If you're looking to only sport climb and boulder, still start in vegas but then head to Bishop and climb at owens and the buttermilks,(also 3 hours from Vegas). Awesome trip either way.

If you're wanting to come to Australia, but you only have two weeks, forget it!... Wait till you have at least a month if not three... there's too much to see and do... you could spend a month in the Grampians alone and still only climb 10% the routes there... add Arapiles and there's two more weeks....

Without a doubt CALIFORNIA ! a climbers paradise. Do I need to list all the fantastic places, the great weather, the desert climbing, the high sierra. Sport, trad, alpine. I don't live there but I take a climbing vacation there every year. I am pretty sure I would not like to actually live there, but I'm in love with the climbing it has to offer.

If I could climb anywhere.... Patagonia or Baffin Island.

Pretty vague question if you are looking for real feedback, dude. If you want helpful answers, you should include things like your budget and specific type of climbing and skill level. Of course if you are rich, then you can scrap the budget thing then just ask for best locations for a specific discipline.

Locally- without a doubt Squamish. It has every form of climbing you could want, and all of it is quality with a GREAT camping scene.
Far away- Thailand.... make sure you see a "pingpong" show while you're over there
