Thanks everyone for posting so far, the thread's been up for just about 2 weeks and has just over 2 to go.

If you haven't posted yet and want to get in on the action please let us know which climb(s) are the ways straight to Heaven... or Valhalla :hapban

I think it has already been mentioned but I would suggest "The Gospel Express" an 18 Sport route at The Steeple in Montagu.
Also "Godchild" a very good 22 sport route at The Farm in Montagu and "Energy Crisis" Trad 20 at Wolfberg, Cederberg. Thanks Dave

They've been mentioned already on this thread, BUT VISUALLY (in terms of your project and as a lifelong tradder - who by definition then has an eye for a line and as well as how the dynamics of light and shade enhance that line contextualised by a climber on it) my choice would be Wolfberg in general but in particular ENERGY CRISIS (any of the routes on the prow), KNOBLESS ROBOT, and the adjoining GRAND GUL. These are cathedral-esque features when a climber is seen on them in the right light and from the right angle.

As a visual artist , you would appreciate that.

And if you saw a climber on FAME AND FASHION at (Hogsback), at the right time on a winter's day, you would chortle with joy!

I think High noon (21) is still one of favourite routes.
It’s a short little balancy route on the flying is fun crag at Boven.
