Goucho RIP

Best Climbing Experience
It's always been as much about the people I climbed with, as the routes themselves, but the following spring to mind:-

Finally succeeding on a winter ascent of the Eiger NF, after two previous summer attempts in the 80's ended in epic retreats.
Topping out on Salathe Wall at sunset.
NW Face of Half Dome.
Great Wall on Cloggy, done in one pitch, on a brooding Cloggy day.
Right Wall, after wanting it for so long.
Leading all 3 pitches of Midsummer Nights Dream on a warm summer evening.
Profit of Doom - grit at its finest.
Finally having the guts to discover there are both holds and gear on Painted Rumour.
The superb 2nd pitch of Haste Knot.
Point Five & Zero in a day.
Nerve Wrack Point, Tuolummne.
Motorhead, Eldorado.
Sitting with my feet in Loch Etive, under a beautiful blue sky after a wonderful days climbing on the Etive slabs.
Classic routes in the alps with great friends - Bonatti Pillar, Walker Spur, Droites NF, Troilet NF, Freney Pillar, Matterhorn NF, Cassin route on the Badile and many more.

And of course there were the wild adventures after the climbing........
