Please stay off these routes when wet or you erode the holds far more quickly.

Umm. Thanks for the input and you are absolutely right about climbing sandstone when it is wet. If you have ever been there in a downpour you would know that this route stays completely dry. But, don't tell anyone.

fwiw- sandstone absorbs water like a sponge, and even if it looks dry, in a downpour like that, all the rock will be wet just underneath the surface after a short time. So really, please do not climb sandstone in flood conditions, even if it 'looks' dry.

Yeah. No. It does not get rained on... ever. But, I appreciate the concern. Look at the picture. It has been raining hard enough to flood the belay. Yet, the route is bone dry.

Why risk it? Just climb somewhere else or take a day off.

Reading comprehension? ^^^^

I think everyone is reading just fine.

It's just not a good idea. When the Colorado Mountain School bus drives past and sees people climbing after rain they think it's fine. I see it all the time. Just a bad example to be setting.

We weren't and we don't climb on rock that got rained on the day after. We were climbing on dry rock during a downpour when nobody was around. Again, reading comprehension.

Unfortunately people climb on Wall Street the day after it rains all the time. Some out of ignorance, some just arrived in town and are unaware that it rained the previous day.

Poor form to climb sandstone when there is water, regardless of time or dryness of rock. You seem to frequent the area, you should be the steward and champion of preserving the rock.

Thanks for another comment from someone with poor reading comprehension or maybe just another troll.

For the last time that Rt does not get wet ever. Well maybe in torrential rain with strong winds. But I can assure all you kids that route had not seen any water in weeks or months, maybe years.

Uknown belayer at the base of Static Cling. Fantastic climbing in the rain. You may need a kayak to get to the belay, though.
