Wet bouldering in TAG areas?

How do the TAG crags (HP40, RTown, Stone Fort, Lilly Boulders, Hospital Boulders) dry in rain? I'm thinking of going up on Wednesday or Thursday to climb. How limited would I be? What crags are best to climb soon after rain?

Can't speak to hp40. Lilly boulders stay wet for quite a long time. Several days, if not more. Stone fort is quickest to dry, but rocktown stays dry longer into the rain. Both dry relatively quickly (of course there are some problems which stay wet longer than others). Sun will be the most important factor in how soon they dry.

Sweet. I think Rocktown closes tomorrow until the 10th anyways for the hunting season.

This guy posted it the other week. I'm just going to Stone Fort so I don't risk it. Or maybe Zahnd.

I have heard that wet sandstone is weaker and more vulnerable to damage by climbers. I don't have a source but it might be something to consider.

I don't really have any info on the question asked but I did get off work early today and am looking for someone in the North Georgia area that would like to get into some climbing today! Was thinking bouldering at yonah or anywhere else really. Down for sport also Shoot me a text 7068977149
