Youre only allowed to do 1 more climb ... ever ! 13-Feb-2014 At 10:13:31 PM Ben_E
Hm. These days most of my dream tick-list climbs are aid climbs, which require stubbornness more than Sharma-like strength!

Besides, now I've ticked off Witch at Macedon, what's left to do in terms of free climbs? (Wow- did I really just spray about getting up a grade 17? It's only February, but I may have just put myself down as a strong contender for the Chockstone Wanker of the Year Award...)

I think I'd settle for a free ascent of the Northwest face of Half Dome. Should be a pleasant romp at 5.12.

Mind you, someone way upstream nominated Mt Thor, Baffin island as their climb of choice, which would be pretty nice too.

I know in the opera it never pans out well for anyone who tries to bargain with the Devil, but maybe we could cut a deal where I get the Sharma-like strength for a final free climb and then promise never to step out of my aiders again (I mean, it's not like aiding is real climbing, after all...)? Key the Hungarian March from Berlioz' Damnation of Faust...
