Has anybody been on or near the shetlerstone in recent days ? And more importantly is it dry? Was hoping to get on the needle in the next couple of days if possible.
Any info would be greatly appreciated...

I camped at that end of the loch on Saturday night and the ground was reasonably dry with just a few wet/muddy areas, and there was a fairly strong northerly wind. I can't comment on the condition of the crags as I was backpacking through and not climbing, but looking at the photos I took (eg https://goo.gl/photos/SxBBJJ9xHCEyZFxh9) the rock looks reasonably dry. I didn't see any snow patches, and there were no midges. Hope thats useful.

Was also in the area over the weekend. Shelterstone crag had some long seeps on the main slab section, difficult to see whether the RH side was affected in the same way though. I can also report it was midgy hell at the head of the loch on Saturday morning, thanks to the lack of a breeze.

People were climbing on Creag a'choire Etchachan Saturday.

Not been there but the routes on the main bastion dry quickly so yes, it will be dry.
