Weathers looking terrible this weekend. Wondering if its likely the GOP could stay dry? (is there much seepage generally?)

Looked quite dry in Mike Harts vids from the other day. Was seaping last time I went but stuff to do. Not a great venue for when it's actually raining though, bit grim.

Take a tarp if you go, really muddy when wet.

Anyone know if it's dry? I don't really have a handle on how wet/dry it's likely to be... (ditto for Pantymwyn presuming it's not fallen down yet)

Pantymwyn should be dry but a fatty like you might end up in the sinkhole .

Nice one cheers. Maybe if the floor falls down we can turn the boulders into routes...

Youll probably still be able to pull onto the problems from the bottom of the sinkhole you lanky fuck.

Not really, sorry to disappoint.. will try harder next time. By the way, on Ken Masters, is your RH allowed to use the good crimp (used with LH on the 6c+) or do you have to use the minging one just to its left?

Ermm trying to think. Well Ken masters higher start starts with the glued pinch and the tiny crimp at same level with right hand. Id say anything up from there is fair game. Not meant to be eliminate .
