Junkyard Seepage?

Does anyone know if this place seeps much, since they've had a stack of rain down that way. Might head down Saturday if it's OK

I reckon it does. But there will always be something dry to climb there.

This is one of the wettest after rain crags I have seen. Just by looking at the water washed stone at the back of the cave you can understand the amount of post heavy rain seepage.

The climbs at the beginning and end of the crag stay dryer so head down and check it out. If not trackside should be dry.

junkyard dog and surrounding climbs seem to stay dry after and during rain.

Needs quite a bit of rain for it to seep badly!

I think this crag gets wet not because of rain but because its steep and sits above a river, you know how clouds (moisture) hangs about the river at night, it catches it all as it rises. If its wet at 11am its probably gonna be dry by 2pm.

I've climbed there after rain and the stuff in the caves are dry. The first few climbs as you enter stay wet as seepage from the top continues a bit but the rest is great.

Great climbs Matt and perfectly bolted!
