Part time jobs

How easy/hard is it to get a part time job in Squamish in the Spring/Summer, with more emphasis on the Spring time? I am open to almost any type of job, as long as it isn't for free, and allows me to climb often. I have no food service type experience, my resume consists mostly of trades type jobs.....

I am planning to move there temporarily, but other things prevent a permanent move.

How well does McLanes book describe how weather conditions effect different areas (i.e. wet vs dry in the spring months) I have yet to pick it up...

I thought the falcon closure only affects some areas, not all the climbs?

Squamish in Spring

How is climbing in Squamish during the spring (April-June)? Is the weather fairly unpredictable w/ a lot of rain? Or is it usually fairly dry by April/May?

Are the crags very busy? Easy to find partners?

Thanks for the comments everyone. And I am well aware of the approach/descent difficulties, as well as the extra gear I will have with me. I won't be climbing my trad/multipitch grade, but rather a few grades below. The above was just an example. The Bugs are definitely known to make epics of climbs...

Bugaboo grades vs Squamish

How are the grades in the Bugaboos compared to Squamish?

I.e. if I can lead 10.c trad in Squamish on a good day, can I lead the same grade in the Bugs or is it graded harder? I.e. I may only beable to lead at .10a/b ?

Planning a week-10day trip in the summer...

Thanks
