Does anyone know some good trad stuff that will stay dry this weekend?

It is not the runoff that will be the issue, it is the dew point. The air will be saturated with water and likely the walls. Book some white water Saturday.

There is one climb at the cirque and one at Rico, easy and unfulfilling, but dry.

Party Buttress at Endless. Biohazard (5.8), Back in the Saddle (10c), and a 10b sport climb stay dry in most anything. Premarital bliss (10a) can be dry too depending how much rain.

What grade range are you eyeing?

10d is probably the hardest I wanna get on. It looks like Sunday and Monday are going to be dry now 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
