I'm a climber/alpinist based from Chamonix for most of the year, scraping by with different odd jobs which i can time purely around expeditions and conditions in the Alps.

Best Climbing Experience
Single-pushing Denali's Cassin Ridge. Huge day, completely wasted, almost 3000 metres of climbing at a very high altitude. Felt very vulnerable and "naked" the whole way.
Evenings climbing on St.Bees head with a couple of good friends, when things start glowing very deep red and you know you'll have to walk out in the dark. But you can't bare to tear yourself away from the place.
Obsessed in the Jorasses north face, all routes i've climbed it by have been very fond experiences.
Dozens of other "Grande Courses" in the Alps. I think all of which could be called "best experiences".
When i was young, myself and a good friend climbed "Orion Direct" as a very early climb with axes and crampons, we were slightly out of our depth, but at the same time in control. We were on such a high afterwards we ran down and soloed Tower Ridge in the afternoon.
One particular day in Patagonia, when everything was just perfect.
I've just thought of another 20 "Best" experiences, those i'll keep to myself.
