So everyone has that one peak that inspires awe like none other. That peak that you have seen from afar or in a rag and just MUST climb. This is the thread for everyone to share what peak that is for them (feel free to include more than one). For me I would have to say the Moose’s Tooth in Alaska. The profile of the face and the history of the assents inspire me to climb that bugger. Lets hear all yours. (preferably a peak you have not climbed yet)

in the near future, the diamond, the right hand side of the diamond, occupies 90% of my daydreams and probobly 100% of my real dreams (which i never remeber).

when i'm not dreaming, but fantazising, patagonia and the trango's.

i got a real boner for alpine bigwalls.

Hmmmm... I wonder why my photo did not show up???
I did everything the right way.... I think...
I guess webshots and rc.com are not compatible for upload.
Oh well, I guess my dream peaks will have to stay in my mind :cry:

Cho Oyu in the next couple years. I need some cash but I'm training my ass off and I need to climb some peaks like Denali and Acancagua before I hit up Nepal. I can't wait.

Cerro Torre, via Todo O Nada to Via Compresor.

What can I say, I'd be more than happy to make it up the bog-standard route. Kind of the Nose In A Day of southern Patagonia, I guess.

Is't either Cerro Torre or Trango Tower. To be honest I'd like to do both.
