What happens when you climb on sandstone when it's wet?
Climbing on wet sandstone can be damaging to both the rock and the climber. Wet sandstone is softer, more prone to erosion, and less grippy. Climbers are at a higher risk of slipping and falling due to reduced friction. Additionally, climbing on wet sandstone can cause accelerated wear and tear on the rock, potentially leading to permanent damage. It is best to wait until the sandstone has thoroughly dried before climbing to protect both the rock and ensure a safer climbing experience.
