Trowbarrow and Warton Conditions

The 'big thaw' hit warton today and the snow on the top of plum buttress and in the tree is melting . This has resulted in streaks of water down the butress and onto some of the key holds. I managed to dry the holds on and climb on posion but the jug on voodoo people was wet.

Over at trowbarrow the vitruvian man face of the giant shelter stone was climable and in top nick. The other faces had melting snow on top and if the thaw continues will be wet. The red wall area was ok. Seepage on ying yang, the start of shallow grave and the diagonal break at the foot of nicks problem.
