Best Climbing Experience

Too many to pick one! Loved living in New Zealand and doing some awesome alpine peaks such as the memorable and stunningly beautiful Mount Aspiring. Favourite Euro alpine route probably Salbitschen west ridge, Comici route and Walker Spur and favourite winter routes probably Messiah, Silver Tear/Cooler and Minus 1 Gully. Long rock routes wise - the Grand Wall route in Squamish, the Vestpillaren in Lofoten and the Inshallah Factor in Wadi Rum definitely live up to the hype. (But which is better? Tough Call!) South Africa was pretty amazing too - climbing in the Cederburg, Waterfall Boven, on Table mountain and the perfect bouldering at Rocklands....oh and my favourite long UK weekend was Fay, Diamond Smiles, Dreadnought and Heart of the Sun in the sunshine......honorable mention to the two times I've done Bloody Sunday in Hunstmans leap - 40m of perfection both times! Finally a summer trip to the Alps in 2010 where I thought the Comici Route, the Walker Spur and Kundalini/Luna Nascente in the Val di Mello were all pretty amazing..and I got engaged too! :-)
