Cause I'm a hedonist, I'd love to hear some stories about what people think of as the funnest climb they've ever done. Not the hardest, or most epic or enduring kind of thing, rather start to finish, that climb was fun the whole way through. ryan albery

I'll third for Snake Dike, cept for a touch of the hiking wasn't pure fun.

Same goes with Outer Space, and Prusik Peak further up.

Rock On to be sure.

Triassic Sands, Long Dong Wall, Dihedral on Lake Powell, and Lauren's Arete.

Cocktails and a portaledge- yeehaaa.

I'm with you on that climb, from the spelunking to get there to the gigantic holds its almost the funniest line ever.

Mt Olympus slabs in SLC, running up 2000' of 5.4 overlooking a major city is worth doing over and over, way better than hiking

Any #2 sized handcrack at Indian Creek

Any juggy overhang at Maple Cyn/AF

hey look, 3 out of 4 are in Utah!

Sun Ribbon Arete on Temple Crag. It was a perfect bluebird day, we climbed fast and efficiently, laughing and high fiving the whole time. Everything just flowed. Even the supposedly heinous descent from Contact Pass was covered in snow, allowing us to glissade. Cory
