Need a set of all-around wheels for climbing, descending, fast group rides, occasional gravel riding, and crit racing.

Can get a brand new set of 2014 Zipp 202 carbon clinchers at the same price as a set of nice aluminum handbuilts - Hed Belgium, CX-Ray and CK R45s.

Rides can be wet occasionally but more like fog and dew than rain (NorCal).

What would you do?

I feel bad for saying this, buuuut what I would do is get the 202s, sell them, buy the handbuilts, and pocket the rest.

With your riding prerequisites I wouldn't be horribly interested in a set of carbon clinchers
Any wheelset built around the hed Belgians is gona be pretty awesome.
I think you know what the answer to the question is :D

I had the same dilemma, I can't be 100% helpful considering your situation might be different in teem of percentage of usage. But I ended up with Stinger 4 tubular, and campy Shamal ultra 2-way second hand. Solved 99% of my problem. I believe true one wheel-solution is non existent, as I prefer non-carbon brake track for those rainy days and dry fast descending. Whilst I love tubular on good days, criti and group rides including.

Yep, I'm painfully aware of the potential downsides to riding CC in the wet, long descends and rough gravel. But walking away from a set of 202s at that price is just so hard to do!
