Is it to early to get up there and climb some cracks? Was thinking of heading to Rumney next friday/saturday, but would definitely rather hit up Cannon or Cathedral. Anyone have a conditions report/dry route beta for Cannon or Cathedral??
Cheers

There will be plenty of dry rock at Rumney tomorrow due to it's southerly exposure. Cathedral and Cannon, on the other hand, will still have ice, and a lot of wet rock.

Early spring is usually the worst time to climb at Cannon. Wet, often still icy, and lots of loose rock. Some of the more sun exposed and stable routes should be fine, but I'd stay out.

As long as it hasn't been absolutely pouring rain for a day or two before, Rumney is nearly an all-year 'round crag, provided you a) know where to go, and b) climb 5.12.

As for Cathedral, probably plenty of stuff to play around on up there. A lot of wet stuff too, but at least it isn't as likely to explode as cannon.

April is always a crap shoot up here, but if current conditions hold and we don't get some crazy dumping between now and then, the South Buttress of Whitehorse will be great, Humphrey's is climbable now, probably many of the routes on Cathedral will be in good shape as well. Still a lot of snow and ice at Cathedral, but not nearly the amount that we are used to up here. I think rock season is coming early this year...though I may eat those words! As a rule of thumb, I generally stay clear of Cannon well into the spring.
