Anyone care to share experiences of problems (or not) with snow melt today? Thinking about plans for tomorrow.

Froggatt was 50% wet, 50% dry. Curbar was a bit wetter and had snow all along the bottom, often deep, which made approach and belaying a pain. However snow was visibly reducing in extent by 5pm.

Cheers

Stanage had some good drifts and improved landings but most of the rock was properly wet.

Not grit, but Stoney might be worth a look. Was fine yesterday, Windy Ledge & Garage Buttress were in especially good condition

In reply to Si dH: It's utterly minging up here, constant light rain. Don't think west will be in good condition tomorrow even if it dry. Doesn't look like therell be any sun.

I'm just down the road from the Roaches and it's been pretty miserable and wet. That + the snow melting etc will make it pretty miserable.

Majority of routes on stanage were fine yesterday.

Plenty of snow still around though

Stanage a bit greasy at first but dried off nicely throughout the day. Not much in the way of good snowballing, but we built a decent landing under Daydreamer, should last into tomorrow, get on it!
