Best Climbing Experience
Frendo Spur in a single 9 hour push.

Managing not to die on the descent of the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey.

Every move of Sticil Face, soaking up the incredible Shelterstone atmosphere.

Getting buzzed by an Apache helicopter on the crux of Gargoyle Wall on a bluebird day on the Ben.

Agag's Groove in winter - an inspirational route that I couldn't quite believe I'd managed to do. Shame we epic'd on the descent. Getting back to my London apartment at 5:30 Monday morning, grabbing a shower and heading straight to work was one of the grimmer parts of my climbing career.

Watching the sun melt into the Atlantic from the top of Presten after having climbed the immaculate Himmelen Kan Vente, hands and toes burning from many, many metres of perfect granite.

Collapsing back at the tent for a cool beer after finally realising the long term ambition of enchaining all of the Ben Nevis ridges in winter in a day.
