Best Climbing Experience Trying ice climbing for the first time when in the Alps and jumping onto a grade 5 thinking how hard could it be!
Standing on the top of Mont Blanc aged 18 on my second day in the Alps at 3pm after a sleepness few hours in a snowhole (no money for hut and did'nt own a tent) with the biggest headache in the world and then walking all the way down to the valley base to start my Alpine training course the following morning.
