I would buy one of those little houses and live there(with the Wifey) forever if we could.

Really hard for me to choose a route, but definitely this is my favorite place to climb. Feels like home when I'm up there.

I can narrow it down to 2 routes, both in the Dolomites:

#1 is definitely the "Scarf Arete," on Cima della Madonna. Ten of the airiest and most fun pitches imaginable; 5.7+ climbing to a solitary summit followed by a technical descent involving some downclimbing and several rappels.

#2 is the "Spigolo Jori." on Punta Fiames; 12 pitches with a difficulty of 5.8. Exposed climbing on marvelous rock.

These are both mountains and not just rock formations.

Hard to pick just one, but my favorite for the whole experience would have to be VMC Direct Direct 5.10+, 8 pitches, Cannon Cliff, NH.

I like to picture every route, pitch, and climb I've done as one continuous scroll. So, that's my favorite.

Erect Direction. The Gunks. The last two pitches linked into one is some of the best, most sustained, airy and technical climbing to be found anywhere.

Epinephrine 2000 feet on steep fun rock with cracks and face. Absolutely outstanding. No pictures but supper sweet. My favorite pitch is probably Walt Bailey Memorial at devils tower. Perfect fingers to hands for a full pitch. The only one pitch route on the tower.

It's impossible for me to pick one and then stick with it when challenged by other good memories.

Either Royal Arches or NEB Higher Cathedral Rock are near the top though.

So slab, face, or crack. Hell I'll even through in OW if you happen to like the fat girls.
