Thread necromancy bump, for a new Chocky demographic...

Post edit.
I find it interesting that this thread (in a general sense), reflects the great diversity of the climbing community through the diversity of the answers given to it.
I also find it interesting that adventure and/or traditionally protected routes seem to be in the majority... Does this say something about our collective wannabe-psyche?

Assuming Sharma like strength and Peter Croft cajones it would have to be a solo of Astroman. A climb that has everything from a great boulder pitch to a long, glorious corner to a gnarly off-width. What more could you want ...

How is that different from all the other times I've climbed with you?

Not too different, other than the fact that you'll be on wings of steel...

Some really interesting responses. I wonder how many of the "2004 people" actually went on to climb their dream routes?

I guess the overseas ones can be hard to get to for people with careers and families, but it always surprises me that climbers can have a "dream route of a lifetime" in their backyard yet never bother to get on it. Whenever I see things like Passport, or Deeper Water, or even Sunshine Cracks in the Bugaboos as peoples "all-time dream", I just think they should go and try it. Doing a 6 or 8 pitch route with a couple of aid points/hangs on the rope is 90% of the experience you get from doing the same route clean. You can still have an amazing adventure even if you don't think you're strong enough to tick the thing. Passport would still be a mega experience via aiding or dogging, and that is probably a necessary intermediate step to freeing it anyway. Or it might turn out to be chossy shit in reality and you were wasting your time fantasising about it. Either way, surely it's better to gain first hand experience.

Get out there and chase your dreams!

Another vote for Trango - without the risk of being kidnapped by fundamentalists. But after reading ODH's post, I think I might put the buff aid weekend to good use and take a look at Passport when the weather cools down- if it isn't burnt out.

Totally agree and we've been talking about walking out there to take a look around, do some of the easier bolted lines and see if we're dreaming or not. Looks like an amazing place to be even if we fail miserably with the actual 'tick'

Next year? I have reliable first hand info that the crux pitches would only get 24 or 25 at Frog. The thing sounds really doable.
