According to the register I got the 10th ascent of this thing in like 1989. I wore tights then, so I'm not sure if it counts.

Sam -- I think this picture shows climbing Cerberus on Tricouni, not Cleveland route on Hairy Pin. Dec 7, 2008

Good eye Kris. It wasn't getting a lot of traffic then but by 1989 there were far more than 10 ascents of Hairy Pin. The original register was likely replaced and/or some climbers simply weren't signing it. . . Dec 8, 2008

A-ha... well, I found the picture in storage. My big ticks on that trip were Hariy and the Thimble after tr-ing it (woos). I wasn't sure what route this was or what pin even. Thanks for the clarification. IT makes sense that its the Tricouni cus I also have a shot of my partner and I rapping form the summit...
I can remember thinking on top of Hairy Pin that 10 seemed really low. It was scary, but not that scary. Dec 9, 2008
