The Mine (Sunday)

Post by lelikegogga » Thu Nov 12, 2009 10:36 am

Planning to go to The Mine on Sunday. Want a second opinion on what the conditions will be like. The wind was North West this whole week, but is turning strong South East (35km/h) early Sunday morning. How quickly does the rock get slippery when the South Easter blows? Should we rather try going Saturday afternoon? Will it be dry then?

The Mine gets 'schaulky' very quickly (sometimes you watch the chalk disappear :!:

Would recommend Saturday afternoon, there might be some dripping from the top but you will be able to find dry routes.
Enjoy and watch out for the BBB :)
