Even on a sunny day, the ground on and around the ridge is now so loaded with water that it keeps seeping down the rocks. And there's no capacity to absorb more, so each new rainfall runs down the cliffs.

Up on the ridge-top not far from Arrow are some large pools of water. (Will this lead to flies and other bugs breeding?)

Mosquitoes will breed in standing pools.

Since everyone raps now a days, the pools along the ridge top should be of little concern. Though upper belay stations could be miserable for a few weeks to come.

Yes spread the word, there is no point even trying to climb in the Gunks! Don't go! Except you, Gail. You should go with me although I can't do tomorrow.
