Best Climbing Experience
Mountaineering routes in the Dolomites, notably Cima Tosa and Marmalada; Suilven and the Old Man of Stoer in NW Scotland; the Schaertelplaette on the Gimpel in the Lechtaler Alps.

I love to get out in the Lakes, had 2 great holidays on Cornish granite and 4 around Scotland. Gritstone good fun for a lazy day's cragging, but can't really beat a good day in the mountains or on a sea-cliff.
