Best Climbing Experience

Always the ones with Rachel. Climbing the Devils Tower, Wyoming. Topping out of The Chasm on Buchailletive Mor after 11 hours. Wrestling up the great chimney, Great Gully, Craig yr Ysfa in driving rain with big pack, litre flask of tea, pint of milk and pie or two. Climbing out of my skin up cliffs in the dark - sans headtorch - under mini-avalanches, spindrift and blizzard and doing a leap of faith in order to reach the salvation of the old almost-never-visited Gervasutti Hut (before the space ship thing), Frebouze glacier, Alps. Surprising myself with a sense of self-preservation by turning back in bad weather less than a rope's length from the summit of the Dent du Geant. Reaching the highest point of each country in Europe. Completing all the climbs in Classic Rock with Rachel. The three month USA climbing tour. Getting back to the car for a nice cup of tea.
