Was there on Friday and many things were dry or drying out. Raindogs was seeping on the pocket and on the foothold above, but most things to the left were do-able, and all the stuff to the right (except the Groove) should be in condition by now.

The polished foothold above the flakes at the start had a seepage line on Friday, but with a bit of luck it may be dry tomorrow. The pocket at the bottom was soaking and I wouldn't put much money on it being dry, so a teatowel is essential, but a portable hairdryer may be a better bet! Everything from the second bolt up was and should be fine though

Sorry, my comments were directed at begoio, rather than Rose Coronary, which itself is a good climb. If you want something a bit more bouldery Sycophants is good.

ah right i see. Well seeing as it is the first chuff of the year (and in a year too) for me, I was surprised not to fail miserably and not flash it. It's a crap short route but it was OK really...

Went on Sunday.  Quite a lot of stuff was wet - Yosemite Wall to New Dawn etc pretty damp (though Aaron did climb New Dawn later on, but he has got a bit in reserve on it I guess!).  Zoolook was basically climable but too wet to redpoint I believe.  Raindogs had some dampness on first pockets but people were climbing it with some messing about with towels, belayed mate on Overnight which was dry.  Further right mostly dry with dampness on the obvious things.   I guess it will be a bit drier now but rain is forecast later today and on and off for the rest of week I guess things will stay in similar state or start to get worse.

Ian you forgot to mention that most of upstairs is still climbable, everything left of SYT towards Free and Easy looked do-able.
