its been mentioned already but the time of year you go will dictate which crags to go to.

Eg: don't go to Squamish in Feb, don't go to the desert crags in July/August.

Distances between places are massive. Someone mentioned Bow Valley & Skaha in the same breath. They are 7 hours drive apart & different seasons if you want prime conditions!
On that note, the Bow valley sport crags are totally over-hyped IMO. Good if you're in the area anyway, but think chossy crumbly limestone stuck down in shady canyons, when there are massive mountains above you. If you want to climb esoteric crumbly limestone, at least get out on a big alpine style route & make a proper day of it.
