Optimal Temps

Video of Daniel Woods sending ‘The Grey’ (V14/8B+) in the snow.

I don’t know about you, but I am a cold weather wuss. I know that lower temps help with shoe friction and skin contact, but I do not see myself suffering the cold for a SEND. Who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind. I would rather climb when its hot than cold, if I had to pick from one of the extremes.

How extreme would you go for optimal conditions?
