I think the editor should have spent at least 30 minutes to make this readable.
This is not what I would consider readable:
"Hansjrg Auer was a few years ago. At thetime in 2010 it was my first real crack climbing experience and everything felt so hard that Icouldnt even move -the big cracks were the worst and of course they are still the worst!The process oflearning something new in climbing kept motivation highfor this style and I startedto dream about free-climbing a route on El Cap. I can remember it like yesterday when we were hanging on Secret Passage onthe right side ofEl Capitan."
It is embarrassing, not for Barbara, but for the editor. The missing spaces are a copy paste problem. Some of the English could easily be improved without any changes in meaning or style.
As for the overall attitude of the report: I really like it. Babsi and Jacopo are awesome.
