    Have you ever...?-I did 2 years ago

    Hi,

    A: Have you ever climbed a mountain?
    B: Yes, I have , two years ago.
    B: Yes, I did, two years ago.

    I cannot decide which one is more suitable to the question in the present perfect. I am confusend because of the 'two years ago' thing. I think both could be OK.

    Thanks.

    They're both okay, though we tend to repeat the verb if possible:

    A: Have you ever climbed a mountain?
    B: Yes, I have, two years ago.

    C: Did you ever climb a mountain?
    D: Yes, I did, two years ago.

    Did is not impossible but have​ is much more typical.
