Best Climbing Experience
It's always been as much about the people I climbed with, as the routes themselves, but the following spring to mind:-

Topping out on Salathe Wall at sunset.
NW Face of Half Dome.
Great Wall on Cloggy, done in one pitch, on a brooding Cloggy day.
Right Wall, after wanting it for so long.
Leading all 3 pitches of Midsummer Nights Dream on a warm summer evening.
Profit of Doom - grit at its finest.
The superb 2nd pitch of Haste Knot.
Point Five & Zero in a day.
Nerve Wrack Point, Tuolummne.
Sitting with my feet in Loch Etive, under a beautiful blue sky after a wonderful days climbing on the Etive slabs.
Classic routes in the alps with great friends - Bonatti Pillar, Walker Spur, Troilet NF, Freney Pillar, Matterhorn NF, Cassin route on the Badile and many more.

And of course there were the wild adventures after the climbing........
