Hi, I have been to Xela during the dry season and really enjoyed the climbing at Cerro Quemado but I'm curious if it's possible to climb during the rainy season. I would like to come in June/July. Does the rock dry out enough? What time does it typically rain? Late afternoon or early? Recommended climbing time...is the rock dry enough in the mornings? Any advice would be much appreciated!

it only rains in the afternoons during those months, and the rock rarely gets wet.

and some sections that never get rain.

so yes.... you can DEFINITELY go climbing during those months.

cheers
