Hi,

Looking for options for some UK sun, ahem, dryish, conditions over the next few days. Anyone climbed at the Dewerstone recently? Is it worth a visit?

Thanks for any info...

In reply to Sandstone Stickman: If your planning on coming in the next few days, then don't, its solid rain down here and isnt stopping soon, so dewerstone will be wet wet wet.

In reply to SimonMarcYoung: Would that make it De-wet-stone, then?

In reply to Sandstone Stickman: ok, thanks, looks like weather may improve over next few days, fingers crossed. Sheep's Tor looks interesting and quiet open so hopefully might dry off quickly if it does improve... looking for anything low to mid grade that may come into condition if does brighten up. Thanks

In reply to Sandstone Stickman: Probably crap, but I think the moor will be worth a shot tomorrow afternoon. I'm planning an early afternoon bouldering session.

In reply to Sandstone Stickman: Forecast looks good for tomorrow/Thursday. Maybe I'll see you there. Base of most climbs will stay wet for a while but no real seepage issues further up on any of the classic routes that I know of. Providing it doesnt rain Wednesday night conditions should be good enough for most routes to be reasonably dry on Thursday. Wouldnt bother with Sheeps Tor. It seeps everywhere and its crap. And probably rammed with ignorant groups/the army.

Thanks for the heads up re Sheep's Tor! Will cross that off my list then!

And wet it's not clogged up with army/groups it's usually blowing a hoolie - and still crap (although Wind Wall is good).

You may be better on the south east of the moor where it's lower and not so clagged in with minging claggy ming. Good luck!

In reply to Sandstone Stickman: Chudleigh is often dry is the moor is wet and its actually not as bad as you think it will be!

Yeah and you can see whether the moor is clear or in the cloud as you get higher on Wogs, Inkerman etc.

Go north young man! S facing Culm dries very quickly, so does Baggy. Floods and trees down all over the place today.
