There's nothing better than being many pitches up, swinging leads with your wife on a new line you don't yet know is possible, in a country whose people, creatures and customs are a constant source of fascination

Best Climbing Experience
There are too many to mention, but...
being not quite too scared,
being not quite too pumped,
being not quite too weak,
and being not quite too stupid
each result in memorable moments, especially when they're on routes you've invested a lot of time, money or ego in.

Anything Else We Should Know
I've just about convinced myself that being weak is an advantage!

Also just recently moved out to the Ariège in the French Pyrenees, and am really enjoying all of the fantastic climbing here on our doorstep (some of it almost literally so!) If only there wasn't so much work to do in developing our extensive farmhouse and barns into desirable accommodation!
