In reply to jas wood: All low crags will be dry, higher ones may still have some ice in places. No rain here for ages :-)

In reply to mitchellbowen1990: Been at Black crag & Shepherds in Borrowdale, both dry. Also been on Raven in Langdale, that's dry too. Gimmer looked like it might be okay today, although likely a tad chilly. White ghyll has a few tiny bits of snow, but otherwise looking dry.

A few photos from the last few days at the links below:

However, to be cheerful, the crags are fundamentally dry as it's barely rained here for a month, so after a bit of rain they'll have every chance of drying out again quickly.
Was at Shepherd's on Tuesday and conditions were perfect in the sun. Chief thing as so often at this season is to look at wind direction and choose crags in the sun and out of the wind if that's possible.

Winter climbing in the sun yesterday, cragging at an overcast and drizzly Wallabarrow today. Great couple of days, but something makes me think I got them the wrong way around... Persistent rain now.
