So with the record precip this year how long will it take for the upper cracks to dry on el cap? I have heard this can be a problem early season.

There is still a very unsettled weather pattern in Northern California. Before the cracks can dry out it has to stop raining. That won't be happening any time soon.

Depends on the route and the pitch. Some are weapy for months after a record year. We'll know more in 3-4 months. :D

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
