Best Climbing Experience
anything winter climbing is usually the dogs, but all multi-pitch summer routes are better than a days single pitching.
For trad all my days on multi-pitch were the best, and for winter Point 5 was as perfect a day out as you could get, but Black Spout Buttress and others gave a more memorable day out as part of the learning curve.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
anything to do with winter, especially why mixed is better and harder for the grade,but I'd argue snowed up rock isn't mixed! Give the climb a chance by not lacing it with gear and respecting how good the original climbers were, and of course ethics!

Interests Outside Climbing
Family, job, beer and making furniture etc. so I'm busy. As I'm now getting older and have can't be bothered doing all the same local routes at my grade again and again, then I've taken up .........GOLF!!!! Still try to get easy multi-pitch and winter routes in the bag.

About My Photography
Now that I've gone digital I can be as useless as I've always been and not print a whole film to get one decent picture.
