/ how quickly does Tremadog dry
As you watch it usually!
I've had a pot of tea in Erics during rain and when it stopped, exposed routes were bone dry by the time I'd walked over and geared up
My rule of thumb was that if the road was dry, the crag was dry. A few seepage patches would catch you out from time to time, but by and large you could sit in the cafe watching the road change colour and set off accordingly.
Tremadoc (partic Bwlch y Moch) is one of the fastest drying set of crags I've ever been to.
You can climb Striptease before the rain even stops..
If its raining hard but still wan to climb then go and do The Hylldrem Girdle on Carreg Hylldrem. HVS 5a and you are traversing under a roof for the first 3 pitches. Do able in the pouring rain.
I thought everyone knew that it never rains at Tremadog!
(road dry = crag dry: also always worked for me at Trem, bar the odd seep)
I prefer to watch the benches outside Eric's. If dry, then...
I didn't say anything about it staying dry! I found it fun though. Probably add a grade.
Hylldrem is a good shout.
Not quite as quickly as Shepherds or Stoney but they're not in Wales.
