The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a storm, the rock will remain wet for at least several days, and even longer after snow storms and areas with shady aspects. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB THESE ROUTES during or after rain/snow. This route and its neighbors see very little to no sun in the winter months and will dry very slowly. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, basalt, and plastic) nearby.
