50 degrees is perfect temp for climbing at the lake. your shoes will stick to the rock better, and if the sun is ou, you will stay plenty warm. if you're still worried about it, go climb in old sandstone, or the oven on the east bluff.

smart dressing (outer layers that can be removed and put back on quickly) and warm drink.

If you don't have a handwarmer in your chalkbag, sticking your cold fingers down the back of your shirt against the bare warm skin on your back for a half minute or so is a good way to warm them mid route, also.
