Was looking to get up to rumney for the first time and wondering what predicted conditions would be on Saturday post today's and tomorrow's storm for rock (not ice) climbing? I appreciate any helpful responses from this forum's mass of experience to save myself (and friends) a long drive just to turn around!

  • Looking to climb at the 5.8 crag or meadows.

Awesome. Thanks much. Wasn't sure if it was going to be full of slick ice or still wet.

Looks like they'll only get 2" of slushy snow, with sun Friday almost 50F. I'd say the snow would be gone, and it's still not cold enough for long enough for there to be ice. Completely different story 45 minutes further north!

@beedub, make sure you get to main cliff (armed and dangerous area) early and do Metamorphosis. Killer climb for sure.

Great info! Really good first impression to the forums. Looking forward to pulling some rock at rumney with such a great community!

The Parking Lot Wall, over half of The Meadows, Lower Darth Vader, about half of Main Cliff, Jimmy Cliff, and Crow's Nest will likely be the quickest to dry. With the leaves down, there are lots and lots of options for a first-time visitor, especially if you can lead up to mid 5.10 or so.
Enjoy.

It'll be fine. Like most commenters already said, The Main Cliff and the Jimmy Cliff are your best bets, and will most definitely be dry. Snow, if it happens to be present at all, will be limited to the forest floors. Enjoy!

If you're looking for a partner, I think I'll be buying some Darn Tuff socks on Saturday but am hoping to get out Sunday. Could rearrange however. So far I've just been showing up at Rumney and breaking up threesomes so a pre-planned partner who won't bail in cold weather (climbed last Sunday during a light snow) is preferable.
