DSM - Solo - 24/Jan/15
A bit mental today. Rob and I were determined to do a route today. It drizzled from leaving the car to our return. I was both wet and cold as we started the route. Ice was in meltdown all the way to the summit. High winds and poor condition made this route on the day quite serious and a little scary. Not in condition. Still a great day out. A BAD DAYS CLIMBING IS BETTER THAN A GOOD DAY AT WORK EH !

Solo and then roped up for crux and main ridge. Crux felt more like III. Down climbed after ridge ..nice ledges and good axe placements in the crack once it had been cleaned but placing gear for "seconds" protection is def a good idea

lots of unconsolidated snow, no real ice although some frozen turf at top, did with boots and walking axe but no crampons. got rope out for final slab but found it wasnt really required. good fun and a good way of getting back into gear for the winter season

Took a look at the ridge early morning it looked to be in good nick , I always find Pinnacle ridge far from daunting and sometimes wonder about its grade 3 rating , I would rather tackle the ridge in conditions like today's, it was easier than when its wet. Took another look at it mid afternoon still in good condition very little snow on the pinnacles, just a dusting , wont be back now till summer .

on the day we did it, it was a 3 star route, similar to the more famous and populated Dorsal Arete, but PR has more climbing and better views
