Rainy Day Trad

Post by Catawaba » Thu Apr 23, 2015 3:32 pm

Looking for some decent rainy day trad ideas with Dip Wall closed. Saw Hens Nest is supposed to be ok in the rain. Any other suggestions?

i've seen Doppler Effect stay dry after days of heavy rain and if you're in the area No Return is moderately well sheltered.
training is for people who care, i have a job.

Also Dip Wall is not closed, you just have to walk further.

How far is the road closed from the trailhead to Dip wall? I assume you can just park in a pull off and hike the road?

A bit over a mile and half on 9b. Park at the gate at Pistol Ridge... hopefully the road will be reopened soon.

We've been riding bikes back there. Takes about ten minutes.
