Czech Direct route on Denali is pretty cool old.risk.ru/eng/mount/reports/...

Rupal face on Nanga Parbat is awesome.

Maybe one of the Trango Towers?

Just check out the climbs in the running for the Piolet d'Or every year.

Climbing in a snowstorm... How do you work a gnarly project without taking your shirt off? I don't get it.
