When you've been to this crag, just post saying when you were there and what condition it is in, i.e. whats wet, whats dry etc.

It really is as simple as that. lets keep it on topic, just notes about nick, chit-chat in other threads, cheers.

Report from last night as promised.

A little wetter than earlier in the week but worth the trip. Pretty cold and good nick in general.

Pinches wall and rightwards all OK. Powerband area a smidge greasy but still fine.

Weedkiller trav & bens roof dry as were central routes.

Evolution leftwards wet at lip.

Revalations climbable.

See you saturday.

Sat 16th April - 8:00 pm..

Just got back - pinches wall dry and most routes (was trying a little extra).

Teams on Rooster Booster, Why Me? and Sardine - someone left a Beal rope bag avec rope that's now in the hands of Andy Harris and Siobhan...

After waking up to snow in the High Peak, I was surprised to be climbing in a T-Shirt at 7:00pm!
Seems like a bit of a strange idea, like someone telling you the same joke at the end of every sentence.

Bouldering wise, everything dry, with the exception of the seepage streaks around pinches wall. Routes have same seepage spots as per last 3 weeks.

Too hot though. :(

Was there last night. Seepage was the worse it has been for weeks. Powerband, Bens Roof, Weedkiller trav and virtually everything else was wet with condensation. To make matters worse it was pissing down and even the Sardines area had water running down off the top onto it.
 And to think I took time oweing to get there early  :evil:

Also there last night (after Bonjoy). Was obviously better than when he was there - Powerband a bit tacky, Bens Roof dry, Weedkiller tacky, Pinches Wall dry. Bottom of Mecca, Hubble, Funky and Evolution wet.
what would Jerry do?

Bloody hell did it rain alot in the peak yesterday? i was their monday morning, powerband/staminaband bone dry, bens roof dry, sardine and all them routes around that area dry.
Evolution coupke of holds at start wet, mecca looked dryish, make it funky always wet.

Stu/ru when you say hublle was wet, did you mean the wet patch to the left of the starting flake? and a few drips higher up or is it alot worse now? i am hoping to get some pics soon, but no good if wet.

thanks rich

Most of the wetness last night due to condensation/rain blowing in which will have gone by now. There was more seepage but on Hubble all the holds were dry so you should be fine for pictures. The wet patch left of the starting flake is a bit bigger, and there was another wet streak left of that again, but probably won't affect how you climb it (I have to bounce my left foot up the wall to reach the undercut and kept getting it covered in sludge).

If anyone is there tonight would they have a look up at the dryness of the start holds and rightmost undercut on mecca. Might save me a wasted journey. Cheers

I totally forgot to look at mecca lovejoy, soz ard. didn't know i''d be going out there.

All routes right of mecca etc looked bone, i didn't look at hubble etc, and all bouldering bone dry bar the good RH hold at the start of bens roof, which someone may or may not have stuffed some bogroll in to dry it, and may or may not have forgot to remove after not trying the problem. sorry guys.

So Dave, you just happened to be in the back of the cave trying to clean up with bog roll?? I think we all know what you were up to. Despite what Redhead says, it won't help you climb hard. Ask Dense.

no, it doesn't make u climb hard but it does give u vascular forearms. this in conjunction with not actually climbing makes people think u must climb hard. bullshit baffles brains. beautiful
