The list is pretty small so far....

Breakfast of champions/Rogers corner (10.a/5.9) @ index
Sagitarius [and a few to the left] (10.a) @ index
Rainy day woman [and a few to the left] (12.a) @ exit 32

Know anymore? Would be dope to get a rainy day list for the winter. Mainly lookin for trad climbs

Climbs near Narrow Arrow are dry in light rain, but could still be soaked after a storm. Same goes for all of World Wall I guess.

Never been to the Beach at UTW, but supposedly both it and the Lower Cheeks below are dry in the rain: mountainproject.com/v/the-b…

At Exit 38, there's the Actual Cave (Cyanide, Giant, etc), which is definitely less inspiring than anything at Index, but also definitely dry. The two 12s on the right at Nevermind Wall should be dry until just before the anchors, and some of the easier routes to the left might be okay too.

At Index, pretty much all routes will eventually be wet due to seepage.

But on several occasions, I did the 1st pitch of the Zipper in the rain, after a spell of dry weather. This area has a few routes that would stay dry for awhile. It is probably the same for some routes on the Upper Cheeks and Black Sea.

Across the way, No Name Crags may offer some temporary dryness.

Good time of year to bump this up.

I don't know personally, but I've heard that places at Rattlesnake stay dry.

Lower cheeks would stay pretty dry. The zipper (10.b) might get slick though. The rest are all hard climbs

Anyone been to Little Si recently? Looks like it might be nice tomorrow but now sure how much seepage happens.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
