conditions in the whites after the rain
« on: September 08, 2011, 04:26:47 PM »

I may get the opportunity to climb this weekend. How does it look like with seepage on Cathedral? Does the Barber Wall seep a lot after heavy rain? I was hoping to climb there. Are there cliffs that would be a better option?

Oscar dries out pretty quick. The quickest drie out on Cathedral is the Airation Buttress for sure. Sundown seeps as well as the Echo roof area at Whitehorse

Barber wall stays wet for a while. Ethereal Buttress on Whitehorse dries very quickly. I will bet that things that seep are going to seep until they freeze!

I'm now considering heading to Hound's Hump Ridge and the Eaglet. The Eaglet should stay dry and I wanted to do the West Face for a while. What about the routes to the left? Do they tend to seep. Another option we are thinking about is Rumney. There some cracks that I like to do.

Kai, with the caveat that I do not know which cracks you have in mind at Rumney, I expect most cracks at Rumney to seep through at least Sat.  There is still a lot of shade at Rumney right now and that really makes it dry slower than you might expect.

I was thinking of trying Black Jack Crack again and giving Very Nice Crack a try.  But you're right, cracks may not do so well after all that rain.

Very Nice Crack is up high on the hillside and Blackjack is on a boulder, so they might be dry. BlackJack gets slimy from condensation though sometimes. It's worth a shot.
