Adventurous- absolutely.

The ones that get scrapped will be a process of elimination. I need some less popular areas represented in the not-so-rock-friendly states so its not just all about the Coasts and Colorado.

I guess I shouldn't have had Squamish at the top of my list. A bit distracting I guess.

Is your map to appear on a computer program (internet) so it can be revised easily? Seems hopeless to do on paper.

OK, Seriously Letting The Cat Out OF The Bag. Maybe.

My home state Pennsylvania has crap for roped climbing.

The Bouldering however is nothing shy of world class. If you can find it. Then get to it.

Gritstone. Better than England.

All over the place.

You missed Montana--I'd start with Lake Koocanusa, Blodgett Canyon, Gallatin Canyon, and the Boulder Batholith...


...diverse geographically and geologically :-)

Needles? Which ones? SD or CA? Both?

"Black Wall/Mt Evans"

but not the Diamond?

How about Elephant's Perch?

Yamnuska/Bow Valley?

AZ? Cochise? Granite Mt?

Most of the rock that I know of isn't on the mp map. Mostly N Central and Western PA.
Go to synrock.com and ask Jim. He's been quietly picking plums for years.

Crunch- So many features in Estes, I just opted out with RMNP and Cochise is in there, as well as Paradise Forks, Mt Lemmon. Elephants, good call. Its on the stand by list.

Mojede- of your list would Gallatin be the most "destination" worthy?
As in, worth driving 1000 miles for.

Thanks Evel- not looking for obscure or comprehensive. Thats another project entirely.

Ed-
thanks, I hadn't thought of looking at Rock n Road.
Much more comprehensive than what I am doing.

Random observations:

Shawngunks is spelled wrong, it is Shawangunks. The Grand Tetons should be the Tetons. If you are staying within US borders, then drop Portrero Chico. Horse Pens and Horsepens both appear. I'd drop Central Park as unworthy. You should add Whitehorse Ledge if you are going to have Cathedral Ledge.

You have a certain amount of double-listing, because you have specific destinations that are within listed regions. For example, you have the Wind Rivers, which includes the separately-listed Cirque of the Towers and Mt. Hooker. There are certainly other important destinations in the Wind Rivers not mentioned.

On the other side of the coin, you have Sierra Alpine without any of its many specific attractions (e.g. Incredible Hulk). The Adirondacks is also a vast region (bigger than any National Park) with many subregions of considerable interest.
