I have a 2 day trip planned over the weekend at the blue mountains but its forecast to rain. Is it still enjoyable to climb in the rain or more of a hinderance? any tips..

seriously - depends on how hard you can climb if it worth going. If you can crank 23+ then check out Bowens Creek, Centenial Glen, Underworld and even the remote Rain Cave (not in any recent guidebook). The bluies isn't really great when its raining - the rock is really weak when its wet so explodo holds are very common.

The weather report doesn't look to bad to me (showers). Just choose a crag close to the car so you can escape when the afternoon storms roll in.

:D Eduardo is on fire lately!

Your talents are wasted here mate. I think you should go on tour with hero, who also had a patch of magic form a little while back.

80% chance of 1-5mm rain at Coonabarabran on Sunday.
Should one drive the distance and hope nothing gets too wet, or stay closer to home?
Katoomba has 40% chance of rain (good) but its 10-20mm (bad)
Dilemmas...

Boganville is also great when it rains, a bit like Bowen's Creek. Regardless of all the forum abuse, it's a really fun and pretty place to climb, and in the guidebook as a bonus. Lots of good pumpy routes from 20 to 29.

2 days ago the Sydney forecast for Sunday was "Sunny. 80% chance of 10-20mm rain".
These guys have no idea. They don't even seem to be bothered looking out the window on the day of the forecast.
