Best Climbing Experience
I guess its all been so good that I find it hard to single out the best experience!! Spending 10+ years as the full-time team leader of 3 different mountain rescue teams in Scotland and Wales was kinda fun. Reaching the summit of Everest with a good mate was special too. Time spent on the Skye ridge is seldom wasted!
