Considering climbing at Swanage tomorrow, has anyone been out there recently? Is any of it likely to be dry?

Any info much appreciated, cheers!

In reply to David S Gainor:
The cliff-top paths are a total mudbath. Had to call the coastguard to stretcher out a walker who had slipped over and broken his ankle two weeks ago.

Once you're down it's been alright, some seepage but plenty of routes without. If you're planning on going down the Ruckle, I'd suggest rigging a rope for the top-out.

Thanks for the reply mate, much appreciated. Good to know the Ruckle hasn't fallen down completely.

I was thinking Subluminal/Ruckle Far East, that way less of a walk in. What time you want to go?
