aid season
« on: October 30, 2012, 06:33:23 PM »
As you read guide book, you often saw first ascent and after first free ascent. It was normal before that people aid climb a route and that after sone other team free it. As they do a route bottom up, when they aid, it is mostly that the movement was over the limit of the climber.

As the weather was colder, people like to aid climb a route and found himself in a micro climat in t-shirt whit snow around them.

As a trad climber, and as the weather is colder to free climb a trad route, did you have a season for aid climbing?

That's what I keep trying to tell Ed but he seems to think that cold white season is for rock climbing?
