Climax

Definition:

The most exciting part of a story, every moment prior to a climax is building up stakes. This is the highest part of the story.

Examples (Warning, Spoilers):

1) In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, The Climax is when Harry Confronts Professor Quirrell

2) In The Hobbit, The Climax would be the battle of five armies.
