Nowra in the rain

We did want to climb at Pt Perp for the weekend, but looking at the weather forecast, we need some other plans. Given that the forecast for the Blueys is even worse, Douglas and I will be continuing our journey down memory lane at Nowra (It's been nearly 20 years since either of us were last here). I have this recollection of some 23-24 roofs at Cheesedale, can anyone enlighten me as to what routes they might be? Or suggest other areas up to that grade that might be dry in the 40mm of rain that is forecast over the weekend? Or should we retire to drinking with friends with warm houses in Katoomba?

Hmm.

I suggest getting Dug to re-imagine Grace through the power of interpretive dance:

The Pocket wall at Thompsons Pt, while limited, stays pretty dry. You'll need a jacket for the walk in. There are also the two short things under Cowboy Junkies, and the Grease Cave, though I think that's probably a touch hard.

Centennial Glen would probably still be OK.

Pc stays dry. Can't comment on the routes as they are a) too hard for me and b) my only visit was ruined by a dodgy pie

Yeah there are plenty of routes that can be climbed in the wet at Nowra.

South Central will be completely "dry" (ie. the rain wont directly be wetting the holds) however it will most likely be a spoogefest if its raining heavily. Still climbable though.

The cheesedale roofs will be dry, except for maybe the finish holds for the 23 as they are around the lip. And the 24 roof there does seep in the wet too. But "Wham Bam Thank you Maam" (24) at Cheesedale is worth getting on if you're there and will be dry too.

PC is super weird. It might not have rained for 6 months, but some of the holds will be spooge as. And then some of the best conditions i've had down there was when it was absolutely bucketting down with rain.

Grease cave and pocketed wall will be dry, but spoogy.

The weather doesnt look so perfect anywhere but the Point is worth the chance isnt it? You can at least have a go and if it doesnt go well go bouldering at Cheesedale. Its the best crag really on offer. As another option Bungonia at least has better forecast temperatures.
