There are tons of climbs at RRG sheltered by the rain. You should pick up a guide book. At the beginning of each section it tells you if it is a rainy day destination. Even if it isn't, there are often climbs that stay dry and the intro of each section will tell you that. Motherlode, Long Wall, Hen's Nest, Chica Bonita, Bob Marley, Bronaugh Wall, Shady Grove, Bruise Brother's etc... TomCaldwell

the route database on redriverclimbing.com tells how dry climbs stay in the rain. you may even be able to search by that criteria. camhead

Only the two 5.7s (green eggs and ham) stay dry at dip wall. And even though they are good they are short and not worth the hike for just those two.

The character of the Red being overhung makes for a lot of places that stay dry. Rain is not a reason not to climb at any grade level.
