The main venues are properly soaked (Malham, Kilnsey), you might get lucky at Trollers gill or Giggleswick South? Moughton and Panorama crag are quite exposed so could dry out if there's any wind.

I was debating Troller's Gill today but the weather is due to get grim in a few hours around here, so it's probably going to be a pass.

Yep, rubbish weather for climbing this week in Yorks. We sneaked an evening at Malham on Monday before it crapped out.

I was just thinking of places that seep less as the amount of rain we've had this month has been ludicrous, the same amount recorded at the Malham weather station in December!

According to the facebook conditions/partners group even consenting adults had wet bits on it.

You might get a look at personal services?! If the wind hasn't picked up there will be plenty of midges for you to feed too (it got pretty bad by the end of Monday evening).

Check the ukbouldering conditions threads for Malham/Kilnsey for more misery/information:

I know it ain't Yorkshire but if your after some dry sport we were at raven tor yesterday. The usual routes were dry from tin of over to obscene gesture and the toilet.

Everything left of tin of was unbelievably wet and all the bouldering from little extra to saline drip was the same. Total minge fest, I reckon it will take a few weeks of dry weather to sort out.

Glad you got some climbing in, sorry for being so negative!

Which bits of Malham were dry?

In reply to Eagle River: routes around free n even easier and the 6a+ to the right and we did frankenstien too. Rose was doable but tufas were wet at top. There were teams on the upper tier too!
