Wayne-That certainly makes you a BIG part of the team considering the extent to which those folks had dug in their heels!

Write me off forum and I'll make sure that you get a copy.

Great to see you in Oakdale!

Steve sent me this DVD last week. I knew just a little about the ascent (well, actually only that they'd done it and of course I'd seen the photo of the Estes Park celebration with Dave, Bonnie and Bob being cheered in the car) before but I learned so much more - the red tape they had to go through before the climb, the fact that climbing was banned on the Diamond, the absolute coup that they achieved in simply getting permission, and of course the understandable jealousy of the local climbers who had this prize snatched from them. Bonnie makes a fantastic job of the naration, as does Dave Rearick in his contributions. And for anyone interested outside the US, the DVD works fine on European machines.

Thanks Bonnie and Dave!
