Best Climbing Experience

I nearly always say the last climb was the best, just as I'm finishing it, but here are my fave moments so far... I particularly enjoyed Christmas Curry at Tremadog, a beautiful day and stunning views. A really nice day at Porth Clais in Pembroke too, sun shining and a few nice climbs too Doing Hargreaves Original as my first climb after injury was pretty special too, really nice moves, nice setting and just hard enough to be pretty challenging This years Scotland was prety good too, had a moment of epiphany leading Jacobs Ladder and feeling comfortably run out and enjoying the climbing, after getting the brown trousers on Y-Couloir few days earlier. But best of all has to be Conville.It was amazing, felt like a lifetime of dreaming had finally come true, stood on a glacier, under Les Drus and witnessing the Bonatti Pillar crashing down. Now got some more winter experience, so fingers crossed get some more alpine stuff done next summer, possibly even some alpine rock too.
