Aguja Guillaumet

This pitch may have been 5.8, it was time to shed the mountaineering boots and brave the chilly air on the hooves to order to obtain the summit of this beautiful peak.

Re: Awesome!

Feet, hands, noses....yep, it was cold with the 40mph winds we were getting but at least the sun was out. By the time we neared the summit, the winds stopped - REWARD. It was a beautiful climb!

Re: Freakin'...

Quite bad ass! Only the winds made it challenging but 5.8 with 40 mph winds can be fun too. :)

Re: Freakin'...

Just a small correction my dear......but that pitch was 5.8/5.9 ;) You mentioned in your caption that it was 5.6.

A little on Edge

5.8 in mountaineering boots, thats pretty good. I'm not sure if I could do that. Very nicely portrayed.
