Best Climbing Experience

Steeple on The Shelterstone, continually blown away by the quality of each pitch. Probably the best Scottish mountain rock climb I've ever done or will do. Any day spent in the Second Geo at Sheigra. Two weeks of superb weather and conditions during summer 2021, which involved 5 days on Dun Mingulay climbing the classic E3's before a week of sunshine and heat around the Lochaber hills culminating in a very tired ascent of an almost bone dry Shibboleth. Minus One Direct, topping out to a Broken Spectre on NE buttress and then descending to an amazing September sunset. Soaking up every bit of exposure from the last belay of Sula on Dun Mingulay in the early evening sun. Totally absorbed with the climbing on Vulcan Wall on the cleanest gabbro in the Cuillin, then having a dip in the lochan on the way out. Observatory Buttress on the Ben, perfect ice and snow all the way climbing high above the clouds before topping out to the sun going down behind the inversion. Being high on the sandstone towers of Wadi Rum with the call to prayer ringing out in the valley below, a special place. Glorious jamming with the sun going down behind the Outer Hebrides at Neist's Financial Sector with a great group of pals. Grooved Arete on Aonach Mor as my first grade V lead with perfect protection and a tiny cornice sticks out as one of my finest winter days.
