Well I tried to go bouldering today, up the pass to say that it was cold was an understatement. I didn’t even bother getting my rock boots on. However Olly did for about five minutes before we retreated to the beacon. We should have gone to the rainbow slab as it was baked in sunlight. Instead we retreated to the beacon where the heater must have been jammed on full, rather than the usual set for friction heat!
For those with an eye for winter, Cascade was doing its usual tease of developing a very thing yet unless vaneer of ice, the lack of rain over the last few days might well prevent it forming as thick as we climbers might like!
