/ Rodellar conditions
Does anyone know how cold/warm Rodellar will likely to be in late October/early November? Thanks in advance.
My guess is that's hovering round the end of the usual climbing season.
I was there from the 15 to the 24th of October in 2009. Some nice sunny days but when it rained the tufas dripped, but there is generally always something you can do.
You could fill an entire page with low-mid 7s recommendations in Rodellar; the majority of the sectors have several mind-blowing routes in that grade-band. Enjoy!
PS Re. weather. Chances are it'll be sunny when you visit, in which case you'll be fine. If it's raining, though (and it is more likely to rain there, than further south/south-east), you're a bit stuffed: although there are a couple of permadry sectors, most start seeping within a few hours of rain. The Camping del Puente bar has a lovely fire though :)

El camino is a very popular sector with lots of 6's and low 7's
