From UKClimbing.com

Mt Kenya's Diamond Couloir VI has received its first ascent in many years by Kenyan climber Julian Wright along with visiting South African mountain guide Trystan Firman. Strange weather patterns and an unusually wet rainy season produced enough ice to allow for their ascent.

Spoke to Tristan the yesterday and he mentioned that "As best we can tell last climbed by Kitty Calhoun and Jim Donini in seperate pairs in 2005"

Well done Tristan!
I ran into Jim and Kitti on Kenya last time a few days after their ascents. I believe it was pretty exciting climbing.
