I need a locals perspective....Jung.....
What's it lookin like down there? Is the rock saturated or has it been dry? There is rain coming Friday so is that just going to add to how wet it already is or will that dry quickly?
Thanks in advance-
Leslie

it was excellent last weekend; and it had rained the day before that, too. There were a few cracks that were still seeping, but overall it was great.

I might head down for Saturday myself. My partners and I had planned on Old Rag, but I think it may still be a bit wet. I'm in the mood for some classic new face climbs anyhow. Smile

I hate you all.

I'm going to Charleston, and although I like the beach in moderation, there goes another weekend of New deliciousness wasted.
