  • Coffee_and_Croi... said I don't think so, though I figure climbers are generally trustworthy (that is, the untrustworthy ones get filtered out as no-one wants to be on the end of a rope with someone they don't trust)

    For a bold few, there is always some new, mixed climbing to be found on the west face of the Remarkables’—even when conditions are on the thin side. Queenstown climbers Steve Skelton, Adam Carlson, Ben Dare made the first ascent of The Principal’s Daughter (M5+, 4 pitches) in mid-June, when there was not much snow. A bit later in the season, and just before the Remarkables Ice and Mixed Festival commenced, Steve and Graham Johnson climbed another new, mixed line on 8 August, called Naturalization (20/M6, 7 pitches).
