The pinnacles

I didn't sleep to much before the alarm went off at 04:00. It was still raining so I
decided to sleep on since the torres pinnacles was going to be in the clouds.
Got up just before 09:00 and made breakfast (same as dinner yesterday). The sun was
coming out and it wasn't as windy.
Took a really slow morning and I didn't start to walk towards the pinnacles untill
11:45. The climb was rocky as h*ll and it sometimes was hard to se where the trail
went. Im glad that I didn't try this in the dark without seeing this during daytime.
Took 45 min to get up there and the weather was just getting better and better. The
sun was shining and I got a great view of the pinnacles. Was up there a long time,
over 2 hours. Tried to improve my tan a bit. The weather got worse in the end with
some snow/hails in the gusty winds. Going down was easier. Made some dinnier (same
as breakfast) and went for a walk towards the japanies camp. I didn't get very far
since I was talking too many photos on the way.
Went early to bed to do some reading and writing.

That rain and wind was a bitch that night. I went up to the mirador on the 23rd. Stunning views all around and I couldn't believe the overall luck with the weather.
