Best Climbing Experience

Nearing the top of Mont Blanc via the Peuterey Integral, I have always looked up at this feature and knew that it would be a life time achievement to be able to do it. Was not disappointed. Looking down the icey slopes under my crampons with Italy under my feet and throwing myself over that cornice at the top with Dave! The Nose with Jane over a few memorable days and sharing camp 5 with Peak legend Dougie Hall. Sheer Lunacy in Zion in a days push, although only a days cragging adventure it felt very "out there" and the sheer beauty and (and lunacy) of the rock, situation and having the whole place to ourselves made this special. The Mitre Ridge in Winter was the ultimate Scottish Experience. Myself Jack and Steven, Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman battled hard all day to get up the powder invested ridge in Patagonic winds ( never known anything like the wind when I popped my head over and au chevalled the summit ridge) Rock climbing is my love and any day when I have pushed myself and have been a (little) scared I have been most rewarded. Not everyday though just the movement on rock is good enough. Mothers Pride with Dan at Elgol was a pretty special day. Insanely steep outrageous position and steady climbing for the grade made this a special one! Topping out of Fairhead after Heart and Soul and Blockbuster :) Requiem and Calvary have been of my 2 favourite gritstone experiences. Fantastic challenges and situations.
