Stella Noble – a girl may be as small as 4 stones, less than 1m2 high but all of that cannot stop conquering one of the most dangerous and difficult rocky cliffs in North America. With the stunning new climbing images released last month, Stella Noble became the youngest climber to conquer the vertical rocky slope east of the Rocky Mountains’ Longs Peak – otherwise known as The Diamond.
“We chose a time in August when the snow and ice were almost gone, which is when the stones were most likely to fall on you. There are many climbers abandoning 9,000 or 10,000 ft. If Stella doesn’t have the ability, I’ll never bring her here. But she’s better than the experienced climbers I’ve ever known. ”
The Dimond is one of America’s highest and most dangerous cliffs, second only to Alaska. This can be considered a great gift for Stella’s 10-year-old birthday in October. “It is wonderful to think that you can be camping overnight and wake up in the early morning to continue climbing” – Stella shared.
“This is an upright rock face, so there are always stones falling on you, and the higher you go, the more dangerous you are,” said Noble. Stella thought it was great. You can see everything, including Denver, from a great distance. I was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to do it. I was also afraid to know that I would bring her to such a dangerous place. But I’ve done it more than 20 times and I think I have enough experience to be able to get her to safety. ”
There is no official certificate, but in the community of climbers, no one is younger than Stella to do this. 21 years ago, Tommy Caldwell also conquered the cliff when he was a 12-year-old boy. Stella also won first place in July in the prestigious US climbing organization in Atlanta, Georgia, beating other climbers under the age of 11 from around the world.
