Looking for a monkey report on the spring time runoff conditions up on the Big Stone…
Like on stuff that is USUALLY wet this time of year, except this isn't a normal year… Dihedral Wall zone, Never Never Land, etc.
After fifty different El Cap routes, the most notorious seeps and slime pitch has to be the Frogs' Eggs Pitch on Horse Chute / Horseplay.
When Mark and I climbed Pacemaker a few years ago, the very talented Mason put up a brand new free route on El Cap, except for thirty feet of wet crack or corner. He has not sprayed a word so far as I have seen. Maybe this year will be dry enough for him to complete it. I hope so! Plenty of harrrrrrrd free climbing.
I think I'll be on the dry bits all spring season this year...
these dudes climbed the never never land like last week... it all looked dry, from the bridge... theres like NO runoff on the OG trip start and pretty much everything on the SE face and all the way to salethe is dry for shore... climb one of those!
Cool, thanks. Just didn't want to get into a munge fest over on the left side… Good to know NNL has been done this year already. Not really looking at other stuff- more into the location than anything.
