Heading to Leeda for the first time tmrw, but was concerned routes might not dry given the rain yesterday & today. Does Leeda dry pretty quickly, or does it seep for a couple days like Fosters?

Thanks.

I've only been there once, you should ask in the forum on seclimbers.org, someone will know.

I'll second the suggestion to check seclimbers.org. You might also want to bring a stick-clip and a bit of trad gear if you have it. A lot of routes have a high first bolt, and there are a few mixed routes too.

My experience is that Leda dries out pretty quickly. The weather the rest of today (sort of windy) will help. You should be good to go tomorrow.

PS -- as far as Fosters, I've been there when there's still water dripping from the trees after a rain and the rock has been just fine for climbing.
