Started to rain when was half way up first pitch and rock started to run with water. Lowered off a nut to wait out the rain before getting back on and finishing the pitch. Second pitch entertaining.

Led second pitch, after waiting for it to stop raining, and after having to lower off parter on first pitch, to let the rock dry out, after it started raining! No problems with second pitch.
