Lengthy trip report. Took me forever to read. Tons of descriptive details. Lots of great pics of you guys actually on the route. Jake Jones

While you're busy spraying all over the net about 5.7 A1 in the dark, that 12 yr old is probably banging your girlfriend. If you have one."

If you'd keep reading, the article isn't really about how much harder he climbs in the mountains - it's highlighting younger climbers that actually climb hard in the mountains. How many times have you climbed the Diamond in winter?

Just to clarify, Colin Simon and Kirill Langer climbed the diamond in winter. I did not do this climb (yet). I simply introduced a new series of trip reports that we'll be posting on our Website, pullharder.org.
I think Colin's TR is to the point and tells the reader what they need to know to actually attempt the climb and gives a short recap of their experience. Anyone who has actually climbed the diamond in winter knows that its pretty burly. Besides the fact that these guys pulled it off in decent time c2c, I also respect the fact that they are modest and didnt go spraying all over the net. I thought they deserved more attention and I asked Colin to write up a short report for pullharder.org.

Thanks Gil, I for one, enjoyed the trip report... although I'd have liked it to be longer and more pictures - I understand pictures aren't always top priority while trying to climb fast. Robert Buswold
