/ Peak grit conditions & run-off
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.
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
Cheers guys. Anyone been over roaches way?
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.
Anyone got any weather updates this morning?
Majority of routes on stanage were fine yesterday.
Plenty of snow still around though
Stoney bone dry yesterday for anyone interested.
