When I say it out loud, or write it out like this it seems silly. The same way a word starts to sound less like a word the more you say it. Regardless I find myself coming back to the realization that living within 30 minutes of outdoor climbing is extremely important to me right now.
A decent climate wouldn't hurt either.
Looking ahead I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't just an excuse to keep moving around. I'm not sure what areas with long seasons I would even consider. What world class areas like Bishop and Hueco have in rocks they lack in their respective cities. The same can be said about Las Vegas, and Boulder is so damn cool I'm not sure if I could stand it.
Chattanooga, Flagstaff, and Salt Lake City all seem like they might fit the bill, but I'm sure they have their drawback as well.
All I can say right now is that gym climbing doesn't count for anything, and I need to be around some real rock, wherever that may be.
