/ Local Knowledge on Wye/Cheddar/Avon
I'm guessing Cheddar may hold the damp/seep. How does Wyndcliff/Wintours dry out and which are best areas for getting any sun. We didn't get any sun at Ban y Gor until we were about to leave at the end of the day last week!
Is avon a better bet at all?
Cheers for any inside Beta,
I dont go to banygor a lot but its kinda north facing and might be slimy but not sure.
The bottom half if wyndcliff main crag is tree covered and holds the damp, the sport crag is more open but a bit crap.
Wintours doesn't get the sun early, have been there in similar conditions in October after a very wet night and it was seeping until about midday. Not much wind forecast for tomorrow so I don't think it will dry out 'til it gets some heat.
Was looking in the guide earlier and suggests Wyndcliff dries faster, and should get the morning sun.
However, if it's not raining (and it has been heavily) I'd go to the North Wall and hope the exposed bit are drying in the wind.
Really useful. Thanks guys.
