At the base of Static Cling.  Potash Bong Hit is the crack 15 feet left.  These routes remain bone dry even when its pouring rain because of the 500 ft of over hanging rock above it.

Sigh.

First, correct. One should not climb certain types of sandstone including Navajo sandstone, during or immediately following rain. It can take one or two or more full days to dry depending temperature, humidity, and sun.

Second, I am not climbing it. I am taking the photo. I don't even know the people that are climbing it.

Third, this route is protected by 500 feet of over hanging rock above it. It does not get wet even in a downpour. So the rock is bone dry.

Carry on. Apr 7, 2017
Climbing wet sandstone damages the rock and will ruin the route for others as well as put yourself in danger. Not cool. Apr 6, 2017
You really shouldn't climb sandstone in the rain. Especially not a high traffic route. Aug 26, 2015
