HCR/Sam’s Throne trad after rain

How wet do the cracks in AR get after rain, and how long do they typically take to dry? Hoping to get down there next weekend if the forecast holds, but right now it’s looking like a decent soaking on Friday.

I’ve seen a comment that In the Crack or on Your Back stays dry. Will everything else be soaked, or is there a chance for other stuff to be climbable to next day?

Thanks a lot!

It just depends on how much rain the area gets. Anything more than 1/4-1/2 in of rain will have most of the cracks seeping the next day. Right now it's too far out to tell. In my experience, the throne proper dries out the fastest, then East main bluff, then HCR cracks, then West main bluff/outback. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
