After all this rain is the Needle likely to be dry this weekend?

Bump, we're also planning on heading there. It was dry when I was there at Easter so I presume it dries quickly and that the East hasn't had the rain the West has had.

No present knowledge but from experience would expect the 1st pitch to be seeping  which makes it a bit tricker, the hard climbing on 2nd pitch mostly avoids areas of seep, pitches above generally seem to dry pretty quickly and 'go' in the wet - key holds are clean of lichen etc. Needle crack itself probably a bit slimy but also goes. 

Good luck.

I'd have thought it would be a good bet. It's been pretty dry here all week and is a good forecast - go for it!

Don’t know whether you guys got there, we did yesterday and did steeple and it was a bit damp, the rain didn’t help either
