Nice! Congrats on doing the Diamond in winter! How did you approach the Diamond? Via the North Chimney? I done that twice in winter and both times found it to be a ton of work. How long did it take you last time? What's your goal this time? I think the FKT for the winter roundtrip of D7 is 14 hours. Good luck and be safe.

We'll be going for D7. Did it last year in January as well... hoping for a faster time this year.

So cool!! That is a life goal of mine....many years in the future. Post some photos if you do go!
You can touch the void, just don't fall into it.

I fly a starship across the universe divide....and when I reach the other side...I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can. Perhaps I may become a Mountain Man again.
