I was wondering if there was a place here that over hung enough to stay dry when it rains I just moved to Squamish so I havent had time to really look around yet. We are gonna try U wall if the weathear holds but having a back up would be cool thanks Rob

University Wall was dry sunday, when most other things were wet. The approach sucks a little more when it's wet (including the 30 foot 5.6 approach pitch) but the rest either stays dry due to steepness or dries really fast.

No pin-bashing, tho :)

other than that, wrist twister dries super-fast. The gully approach sucks a bit, but you can take a pretty light rack which eases it. Doubles to red alien, singles above that to green camalot, hooks, and losta rivet hangers. Way less than the Maddaloni guide recommends.

most of the other routes either have nasty approaches, seep, or cross merci me (wet runout slab is fun ;)
