Topic - Routes that slipped through your fingers.

Goucho on 10 May 2012
After spending a good hour nattering on the phone to an old climbing friend in blighty this morning, the conversation turned to routes we never climbed at the time, but should have done, and which are now to hard for our ageing bones and lifestyles.

So what routes didn't you get round to, which you regret no doing/were prevented from due to circumstances, and which you couldn't now revisit.

I've got a few>>>

Nanda Devi - broke my leg 2 weeks before departure.
Broad Peak - chose to marry wife number 1 instead (big big mistake)
K2 - backed out because of a career opportunity.
Huntingdon South Face & Denali - spent over 2 weeks in Talkeetna waiting for a weather window which never arrived in time.
Shroud - attempted it, but retreated in poor conditions.
Cechinal Nominee, Grande Pillar D' Angle.
South Face of The Fou.
Salathe Steck on Sentinal.
Hot Line - Elephant Rock
Astroman - Washington Column
Ill Duce - Tintagel.
Never climbing at Pabay
Paradise Lost - Chedder
Citidal - Gogarth
Lubyanka - Cryn Llas
The Axe - Cloggy

.....I'm sure there will be more when I think about it more.
