hi. Thinking of checking out Holcombe Quarry on Sunday. Anyone know if theres any half decent sport routes that may be dry and safe to climb?

In reply to dan ely: Not much south facing but a few East facing on the flooded side. There are only a couple East facing on the non-flooded side although when I drove past a few days ago I could see there had been a rockfall to the right of those routes so don't know if they are unstable.

If you go and it is wet then Fariy Cave (trad only) is about 5 minutes drive away - Balches Slide area is South facing and generally dries quickly

Actually, the Balch's Slide area faces due West
