Congratulations! That is some achievement - was it scary? I doubt I'll ever have the courage to go up there!

Superb :clap:

Looks like you had a good time and not bad weather as well, which is a bonus :D

Your first Inn Pinn photo makes me think "that's doable". Then the one of you roped up at the bottom makes me think "maybe not" :lol: :shock:
