We climbed it a full week after a heavy rain cycle last summer, thinking things had had time to dry out; led the last two .10a pitches with water running down our arms and backs. :?

Good news is that the holds are positive and the gear is good thru the dihedral and O/W at the finish that a little(or lot) of water isn't the end of the world. Just adds a little adventure.

Good luck!

Regardless of this last rain the soil is so dry that this last rain fall hasn't amounted to any run off. I was in Squamish Wednesday afternoon.
Everything is dry
WTF?

I was out climbing after work yesterday and the only damp things seemed to be really low down where it was sheltered from the breeze. You may find a couple of little wet spots, but I would bet you'd be fine.

You should take the opportunity to do Mercy Street while you're up there. It's a stellar route that only dries out completely late in the season (some seasons not at all). If you see one wet streak on the first pitch of it, it's only on 5.8 terrain.
