I've been climbing outdoors for about 3 years, I think i'll do it until i die now. I see my logbook as a trophy cabinet and I've become more proud of it than anything else I've accomplished.

Best Climbing Experience
Landing the finishing dyno on Wings of Unreason after wanting the route for a long time. Topping out on Troutdale Pinnacle and Valkyrie after backing off both in the past. Topping out Comes the Dervish; a phenomenal route in one of my favorite places. Manning up to leading The Sloth even though it was well above my grade at the time. Pulling through the crux of Limited Edition (probably the most cool set of moves I've ever done). Sitting at the top of Wrinkle in the Llanberis pass on a truly stunning day, still buzzing from the climb and watching the trains go along the ridge opposite. So so many more...
