Best Climbing Experience
I much prefer long easier routes to short stiff ones…
Tryfan, Bosigran, Lands End, North Face of Ben Nevis routes are all good memories. South Ridge Direct on Arran was by far my favourite route in the UK after rushing off the midday ferry and then having to walk off in the dark. Cosmiques Arete was another great day out despite feeling pretty ill all day. Bare Blåbær on the Lofoten Islands of Norway was stunning, probably one of the best VS routes in Europe? Lastly a mention to Anvil Chorus on Bosigran, at the time I found it quite physical and was super happy for myself and the Mrs to get up it.
I’ve tried a bit of ice climbing, Cascade de Lillaz in Cogne, Italy. Easy climbing in an amazing setting with great company. Holiday on Ice in Ceillac - Again easy ice climbing with the Girlfriend in a beautiful place.
