In July 2011, Josh Wharton made the first free ascent of the Dunn-Westbay Route on the Diamond of Longs Peak (Colorado's northernmost 14'er). This is the second 5.13 on the face; it's 900 feet long and steep, with a crux at 5.13b. The route was established by Jimmy Dunn and Billy Westbay at V 5.10 A3 in 1972.
