Cool. But hows the carriage road? And the parking lots? The camping area? Are there any routes blocked off by the trees?

Hanging out waiting for Die Antwoord to come on stage

I've been out when the carriage road is a pond and Uberfall is a waterfall and you can always find something to climb. The question is, are you looking to roll up with a list of "three star classics" and never deviate from those seven climbs you picked out for the weekend? Most people I see complaining about there being "nothing to climb" aren't willing to just climb what is open, dry, whatever. I am not saying there is anything wrong with this approach, but it will cause you to be disappointed quite often and miss out on perfectly fun days on the rock.

As for trees blocking the routes, I'm sure you can scramble over a few trees, but if you can't, I find it unlikely that trees will be blocking all 600 or so routes.

If the visitor center never even lost power, I would bet you can find enough to climb to fill up a weekend.

Rainfall in the area was very light. Expect no problems other than the usual fall crowds.

I'd say it would even be ok to climb tomorrow. If I had a partner that is. Anyone?

winter aid climbing

I hear half the ridge fell down and they've doubled the entrance fees to help cover the cost of rebuilding it.
