Made in the shade!  Sucess!

Nice hot day at the Pinns. The shade on this route was welcomed with open arms!

Beautiful winter day  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this route. Climbed with Rob before the weather came in. Led pitches 1 and 3. Probably worth noting that P1 has groundfall potential due to the distance between bolts 1 and 2. Added some excitement!

Fun !  Sucess!

Climbed with Justin on a surprisingly warm and sunny winter day.

Justin led first and third pitches, I took the rest. First pitch was in the shade and mossy, but the big jugs rose above the vegetation. Second pitch quite mossy as well. I think the first pitch was the best - nice exposed arete. Great views from the top too.

Three rappels with two 50m ropes got us back to the base. Took our time and finished in less than 2.5 hours. With the hike in and back it was a nice half-day adventure.

Re: Fun !

Sounds like fun!

I don't remember the route as being mossy at all; I guess it hasn't seen much traffic lately.

Re: Fun !

It's winter and the first two pitches were in the shade. Once the route got into the sunshine it was fine :)

Re: Fun !

Could also be due to a combo of the season and the wet weather we've had lately. As soon as we hit the sunshine on P3 the moss ended.
