Stoney conditions report
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:55:49 am »
Well seeing as everything else is wet, I thought I'd post up that King of Ming at Stoney is a worthwhile 7b+ and for those who really want to scrape the barrel, the 3-star classic that is Little Plum was dry as well last night (well actually just the 1st pitch).

Not been, but I'd guess this amount of rain is enough to mean -10 and tom's will be screwed with runoff for tomorrow

nai was there yesterday and windy buttress was fine, garage buttress looked ok and the bays were variable, but as abarro81 says it'll all be fucked with this amount of rain (which doesn't look set to let up all weekend).

Stoney needn't be a 'desperate' last resort either though, there are actually some good routes there (although low-grade ones are polished).

Minus Ten looked ok yesterday but I was doing routes so didn't actually touch it.
That was before 25mm and counting of rain though so take your chances.

minus ten still looking ok tonight - someone bouldering there.  Lot of routes in the bays showing a bit of seepage now though - wee doris, Double Scotch etc.  thought I saw quite a bit of seepage at the base of scoop wall etc too.

I did Scoop wall on Thursday and it was all dry - drier than a couple of weeks back in fact. Friday's rain may have changed that, but even so it shouldn't last long. Crag of choice at the mo!

Minus Ten was piss wet on Thursday. Given the rain since then I can't imagine being any better now either.
Garage Buttress looked dry though

Minus 10 Breaks had damp patches, but most crimps and pockets were good. Some crimps were squidgy. Overall mostly good today.

It was last time I was there, last weekend I think and its not really rained since then so it should be.

Big starting undercut on Tom's Original seeping, but everything else in Tom's Roof dry.  Minus Ten all dry today.

Garage Buttress was a bit greasy last night, but perfect today after a bit of sun.
Minus Ten is all dry.
Didn't go up myself, but 205Chris said he climbed in Tom's Roof, so I'm guessing it's all dry.

There's a tiny bit of damp on the undercuts but it shouldn't stop you climbing anything there.
