NEWS: 9 Year Old Girl Climbs Longs Peak's Diamond

The Diamond from Chasm View
If you needed a little inspiration for your alpine climbing (or something to bring a little much-needed modesty to your own accomplishments) look no further than 9 year-old Stella Noble of Boulder, CO who climbed the Casual Route (IV, 5.10 a) on Longs Peak's Diamond August 31. Stella accomplished the feat with her father Forrest Noble, and became the youngest person ever to climb Colorado's most famous big wall.

Although Stella is young, she is already an accomplished climber. A member of the ABC climbing team in Boulder, Stella took first place in this summer's Teva Mountain Games in the Ages 11 and under category and is currently ranked 1st in the country for sport climbing in her age group.
