Hey all! I am planning on being in Red Rock(s) later in January and I am interested in checking out epinephrine. Will the chimney pitches be too cold? If so, any other warmer suggestions?

You'd freeze. Or at least be mighty cold if you went today. Ya never know, a week from now, it could be 70 degrees with a warm breeze. Epi is all in the shade... keep moving fast and maybe you'd be totally fine.

RR 1/9/16 - Lots of cold, but hey people climb Everest.

I did it in early February and it was fine. If you're efficient and relatively fast it shouldn't be a problem.

Take double ropes in case something tells you to bail. :-)

There is a lot of snow and ice building in the canyons right now as well, good luck if you try :)

Yeah its doable. I mean I could hit my balls with a hammer. I just choose to make better decisions. You should too.
