Best Climbing Experience
Red Wall in Glen Clova and Unicorn in Glen Coe both in the same weekend after a fortuitous meeting with Simon.
The Grooves on Cyrn Las,Kieth made me do it.
The Devils Slide and Albion with great mates one I'd known a day and one I'd known over 30 years.
Route 2 at Dibaig,We though the day was left and left the Cioch Nose to the midges and rain...and then the sun came out.
Palavar les Flots after a Bennet and Murphy Alpine start i.e. 1pm.
Being towed up Chequers Buttress,Big Crack and Great Slab by a guy "looking for someone to climb with".
