I saw a special on Mallorca once... and it had nothing to do with climbing. Seems like the party capital of the world :D

I really liked Gorges du Tarn in South France. A good mix of vert and steep and it wasn't really crowded. There's a gorgeous river to canoe down during rest days. As Allah said though 10 days is way too short for a trip like that.

I suggest staying in North America and going to the Bishop/Mammoth Lakes area to climb at Owens/Pine Creek and boulder in Bishop. Go after April 22nd to stay in a super pimpin condo for a third of the price you'll pay in the Winter.

Owens... Wow! I would not put that on my dream sport climbing place..

I do love the bishop area, but for the alpine climbing. Minarets, palisades,and the east side of the Sierra!

how about Chamonix? since there's more there than one can do in a lifetime it doesn't matter that you'll only be taking 10 days- and so you might as well get started? of course, the girls in Spain, ..excellent belayers
training is for people who care, i have a job.

Yes, I understand that having a month or more to travel would be optimal... but I don't see that happening in the 5 years. So, I could choose not to travel overseas until then or I could enjoy as much as I can now. It is not like that if I do a trip this year, it precludes me from going back for a month in 10 years. I went to Europe last summer for 11 days and felt like I got to see and do alot.

My friend went to Orpiere and loved it there. SCIN, is that close to where you were at?

Right now, I think Kalymnos is high on the list.
