Climbing at its best. 30-Mar-2011 At 12:41:41 AM prb
Maybe getting back to Plateau Hut with Mike after ticking Cook without incident - I thought that was a good effort for two Adelaide lads with not a lot of mountaineering experience. On rock, mmm, Pine Crack at Moonarie is a personal favourite, I was smiling for days after Kachoong, and getting up Missing Link after painfully failing on the onsight was of significance.

But sometimes the best moments pop up unexpectedly. For example, a few weeks ago I was on Bard with Stacy and Marie who had been climbing for less than a year, mostly in the gym. The look of fear at the first belay, the intensity of inching across the traverse, and their relief at reaching the second belay were all priceless. They both said it was the scariest but one of the most amazing things they had done in their lives.
