Is Vedauwoo alright to climb a day after it rains? If so any suggestions on climbs? I lead solid 5.10, and I'm pretty good with cracks. Thanks! Ryan N

Since you lead solid 5.10 just jump right on 10+ and let us know how it goes. Greg D

So I've got the tape but what are these " gorilla balls"? Are they like those big bro things? I'm sure I won't have a problem on 5.10 I hear all the crux moves on the off-width are well protected with bolts. I've been sport climbing for about a year and can clip bolts with the upmost efficiency. Wish me luck. And thanks for the weather beta. Mitch pm'd me and gave me all the help I needed what I would do without the loyal mp users I don't know. Ryan N

Just wanted to savor this quote. Does that break rule #1? Sorry then.
