Any NRG locals have any beta on the lake height? Is Whippoorwill still accessible?

Also, it's been pretty rainy for the past couple days. How wet is everything?

Whipporwill is done for the season. Can't vouch for the rain but there's always somewhere dry. David Barbour

Here is the current water level for Summersville Lake. The depth needs to be less than 1600 for the bases of all routes in Whippoorwill to be accessible.
Unless you want to mess around on the few routes that begin higher up on the approach trail, you'd be out of luck in terms of roped climbs.

You'll need a boat for Whip.

There will be plenty of dry rock and the weather looks perfect for the next three days
