Autum is certainly one of the best times to visit the mountains. Cold crisp mornings give way to warm sunny days and despite the cool temperatures, it’s possible to climb in shorts and a t shirt all day.
We’ve had a fair bit of rain over the last week so the tops of some of the routes looked more like a waterfall first thing, but these dried up as the day progressed. By late afternoon the conditions were perfect with the rock dry and the air-cooling. Unfortunately we were all spent and the skin was wearing thin
Hopefully a good winter season ahead!
