Parties on Evo, Mecca and Make it Funky, all in workable but not redpointable condition. Keen Roof was getting tried and Ben's was rammed. No condensation but a fair bit of seepage about. Mecca undercut wet and Powerband fubarred. Influx was dry tho.

Should be a shoo-in. There is a mangy looking 20 year old screwgate on the crux so we figured it wasn't his!

Mecca undercut wet. Keen Roof dry. Some of the starting holds under the roof on Evo were wet but no biggie. Staminaband just about dry I hear. Miles better than saturday.

Quite a bit of wetness to start but most stuff workable or doable by mid afternoon.  Imagine it kept drying back well in the sun

It's you bloody nay sayers fault for doubting. It was all dry on Monday and Wednesday. I'm going again tomorrow and if it's dry it will prove that the lime is out to get you for not believing.

On Wednesday the conditions report would have read. Hubble, make it funky, Mecca, evolution, chimes Sardinia tin of obscene gesture toilet call of nature and more dry

Bens, keen, fat lip, cave problem stand, weed killer ,bashers ,stamina band ,hooligan ,oomt ,rattle n hump, kristians and boyband dry

Now 3 days later you all deny and disbelieve it and it becomes wet for your visit. You better hope i can calm the temper of the beast tomorrow
Evening.

In all seriousness though looking at the forecast i truly do believe this is the start of the season and wouldn't be surprised at all if even body machine start dries up well before normal.

If anyone is out today I'd be keen to know the nick, esp if this rain is causing any runoff or seepage, esp on the right hand end. It's been so dry of late I can't gauge if the ground'll absorb it all, or let it all run straight through.

Not the Tor, but I went to the nameless place around the corner this morning.

Some condensation - but dryable - chalked holds seemed to have soaked up any moisture around and needed repeated drying. It was serviceable - just - but a long way from primo. As its stopped raining (mostly) and the Tor gets more wind it might not be too bad - but I suspect stuff in the cave would be not great.

This evening conditions were on the whole good, crucifiction and green alternative were sent and the bouldering on the right hand side was ok; however Ben's roof was soaked, presumably condensation as even the crimp one goes to from the knee bar was damp to touch.

Turds aside for the moment, anyone know how it's held up on the right after the rain this week?

Hi Andy, all bone dry apart from the left hand end where I think the low start to Body Machine etc was wet. Certainly Mecca rightwards dry. There's was a stiff breeze most of the day so any moisture dried quickly. Reckon it should be mint tomorrow if the wind is from the West or south west.

Cheers. Would anybody dare to extrapolate other venue conditions from that?

Would it be optimistic after all the rain to hope it's dry tomorrow?
