Thanks for sharing your top three (or more!), everyone.


Here are mine:


1) Torment-Forbidden Traverse in a long day from high camp in Boston Basin -- magnificent!


2) Climbing Serpentine Arete with my girlfriend on her birthday -- her first Grade IV!


3) Two week climbing trip to the Sierras, quite good despite frequent afternoon thunderstorms and rain. Highlights were Cathedral Peak, Eichorn Pinnacle, Nutcracker, and West Crack on DAFF Dome, plus a day at Lover's Leap . . . Beautiful rock down there!!!

1) Doing the extended version of Dream of Wild Turkeys in Red Rocks (11p, 10a) - April 03 - (being first in line on Crimson Chrysalis ahead of many slower parties was fun too!)


2) West Ridge of Conness and North Arete of Bear Creek Spire over three days in the High Sierra.


3) Liberty Crack in a day - last Sunday! (7th 50 most crowded so far)


Last summer, topping out on Kilimanjaro (Machame Barafu route) with my wife on our honeymoon would have been one - especially since she is not really a climber and has never been anywhere even close to 19.5K.
