cold, it's January, wet, there has been rain in the last month, that has left frozen ground. In places where the sun doesnt shine; that big ledge, as well as many others, will hold snow. the best friction can be found during these cold conditions, it is sending season for the hard-core. . .
as always The conditions are the best when one co-ordinates climbing rock with sunshine; day light - beyond that, it is always climbing season, not the best conditions? that just means it is a good day to practice moving fast over cold ground & frozen stone.
