Hi. I was wondering if anyone knew about the conditions at the New River Gorge / Summersville Lake for this weekend. It looks like they've had about a half-inch of varied precipitation this week but I don't know what accumulation was like previously or seepage. Anyone thoughts or experiences?

The climbing in Squamish is looking good for this weekend. We were in the campground yesterday and it looked like the rain was going to ease up.

Here's a photo of me and Jay looking for our tent....never did find it but managed to recover a camp chair and sleeping bag.



The rock is a bit slippery but if you place your gumboots well you can crank off some hard moves.

HOLY CRAP!!! That looks insane. Was that at the New? Roger's Rocky Top Retreat?

So you're saying it's soaked? :(

Do you think there will be bad seepage from this week's (and previous accumulations) rain/snow?
