Anyone have some new-ish info on the fixed gear/other fun facts about conditions on the route? I'm probably just worrying about nothing, but it can't hurt to know what we're getting into when we're up there.

Also, how fast does the South Face dry after a little bit of rain? Any pitches I should be careful on if it's still damp?

Thanks in advance,

Max

By fixed gear you mean ASCA bolts?

Dries fast. It is south facing after all. If you're comfortable on granite you'd be good to go as soon as the rain stops, or before that even given the moderate climbing - depends on your tolerance. Unless it's a soaker of a storm, it'll be mostly dry in a few hours of sun.

Fixed gear? Bolts? They're fine. Nothing else should be fixed.
