Climbed Tokkum pole today. The front is quite wet, but there are dry lines on the side. It is not touching down and it looked too difficult for us to manage the mixed start, so we lowered from above and climbed up. The line just further up the canyon is also in, a party anchored off the fence and used a tree as a re-direct as the trees all looked questionable. Slightly windy all day, but not too bad. Canyon wasn't as cold as I was expecting. Although there are tracks on the bottom, most of tokkum pole is over open water.

Weather conditions were: Windy, Cloudy. Riding quality was good.
