Length: 563 miles

Where will you start and finish? Yosemite National Park, California to Zion National Park, Utah, USA

Best time to go? Late spring to early autumn, but best avoided on public holidays

How long will it take? Two weeks, but the longer you hang around, the better

This is the ultimate dirt bag climbing road trip. Take the summer off with a couple of buddies, rent a car and sleep under the stars.

Start in the holy land of climbing that is Yosemite. However, a word of advice, do not go to Yosemite on a bank holiday unless you want to be in a two-hour traffic jam.

If you do happen to be there, head through the Tioga pass to Tuolumne Meadows where it’s usually less crowded.

Once you’re bored of Yosemite (if that is even possible), head to Mammoth Mountain, make a stop in Las Vegas and finish off in Zion National Park, Utah.
