There are a couple of climbs that can be done dry in heavy rain. An off-limits wall (the best wall at Fossil, now owned by the Nature Conservancy) averages about 95 degrees and is probably 100 meters tall. That wall has about ten feet of belaying area that never gets wet. As much as I hate sport climbing, I really enjoyed climbing on that particular cliff. Another dry area is under a 40-ft boulder, where routes (to 5.12) were "created" by chipping, drilling and bolting on holds. Those southern boys are way ahead of the times!
