Best Climbing Experience

My first Winter Traverse of Cuillin Ridge (2001) touching rock for only 10 steps from 1 end to the other. Matterhorn (1999)- moonlit evening approach, bivvy @ 4000m and summit to ourselves for 3/4 hour without a cloud in the sky. The Naked Saltire, E2 5c, In Pinn, 1999. I found this perfect line on the back of the most famous rock in the Cuillin 40 years after climbers were first climbing at this grade; so glad they missed it. Since 2003 so many new lines that have given me a great microknowledge of the Cuillin I love.
