The pioneering climbers in Yosemite.
Anyone putting up new routes in places like Patagonia, Baffin Island etc; or those putting up new routes in the greater ranges, e.g. the Chris Bonnington expeditions.
The notable soloists, the 'in a day' ascentionists, and also the unsupported and oxygenless ascentionists in the high Himalaya.
These days I get gripped by the ascents that Alex Honnold makes.
