Yesterday we headed up for Pinocchio on the east face of Tacul. We had a leasurely 2nd bin start as usual and poodled on down to the bottom of the face. We were greated with great conditions and superb mixed climbing over the 7 pitchs we did. Our original plan was to hit Scotch On The Rocks but Pinnochio looked better so we went for that instead. Its not a good idea to get on these routes too early in my opinion as the sun is still on them untill 11 ish which is when we started climbing. We climbed to the top oof the pillar Martinetti and then abbed back down the route as the light started to go. Gabbarou- Albinoni and Modica-Norry look really good right now as well. Here’s some photo’s…..
The climbing was stellar, bomber ice and hooks for the most part with the climbing hovering around scottish 7. Really enjoyable. It also gave me a great opertunity to try out my new Warthog 26 which made a perfect seconds bag.
Get on it!!!
