Me scaring years off my mom's life

Planning on Epi next Saturday and the forecast calls for 61 degree weather. Is this baselayer and fleece while climbing and puffy at the belay weather? Or can I forego the puffy? I'm worried about freezing in the chimneys but I don't want to haul a bunch of superfluous clothing up there.

best advice might be to HTFU....that being said, if you are worried that carrying a puffy is going to somehow affect your performance on this route...you might want to consider something different

HTFU, lol - hadn't seen that one before, but don't need an explanation. A more constructive reply might be that it will likely be pretty cold in the chimneys. They see no sun, ever, and with the sweaty exertion from climbing the damn things, you're likely to want an extra layer at the belay. a puffy in a baseball or softball sized pocket isn't going to be that big of a deal.

That wall is so windy! I would go with some solid base layers and forgo the puffy. You want something that is going to stop the wind and be abrasion resistant. If you choose to grind your way up the chimneys, the puffy will get destroyed. Go with a rugged softshell jacket. I just hope your tuned up for fast multipitch. Getting up and down that thing fast is probably most important when dealing with the elements. Simul-climbing is almost mandatory above the perch.

As long as you look like this climbing the route, you'll be fine
