yeh i was just talking about this with some of my local sonoma county friends today. especially in the creeks and dark dank forests up here it stays wet long after it has rained. fog and cold temps are a factor but mostly wind. if it is windy at all and gets some sun it usually seems to dry up within hours depending of course on how wet it was to begin with.
I was out there yesterday and with the fog and overcast conditions typical of winter the only suitable place to climb was Mortar Rock. I went and checked out all the areas in the guidebook and everything was soaked even though it hadnt rained in a few days. Even at Mortar alot of the problems were wet. I was able to send The Ramp V4 though and it was kick ass! The smooth rock at Indian Rock and the mossy wet topouts didn't inspire me to highball although the problems and the rock look really cool! Maybe if it was windy or we had a few clear warm days after the rain the other areas would be good in the winter.
Just a heads up. was out there today and the was a big pile of human crap at the top of beginners crack and watercourse problems at the pit at indian rock. Talk about a shitty top out. other then that. great bouldering.
