Hope to be in Wales on friday, though a visit to the sport routes would be fun, are they suffering from all this rain?

In reply to hillbilly: if its not actually raining you should be able to climb. The cave area at llandulas, especially the right wall rarely gets wet. Castle Inn dries very quickly, Penmaenhead stays pretty dry and of course the Orme is very quick drying. Honestly, if it isn't raining you should be able to climb as few crags seep much.

In reply to Ben Farley: Great, I was not sure if seepage would be a problem. Fingers crossed for a dry day.

Ty Newydd will probably be ok.

Even the A55 crags have been overwhelmed. Ty Newydd has plenty of wetness. Dulas has plenty to go at but there is seepage where you'd never normally see it. Castle Inn doesn't seep but is exposed. Penmeanhead gets wet quickly but also dries quickly. Basically if its not raining you can find dry routes.

In reply to hillbilly: Your best bets are Castle Inn and Penmaen Head (though forget about Trench Wall!). In the Dyserth area Dyserth Castle Slab is south facing and dries quickly.
