"Bigger" or "Harder" is also highly subjective. Who says? It sounds small, you should remove it. The difficulty or technical barriers on a single route have no defining difference for the term "Alpinism" or "Mountaineering".
I will change the wording of the phrase "Mountaineers stick to the easy routes", but you will have to tell me where I wrote it because I can't find it.
I think you, Bergschrund, have your panties in a wad because the broad definitions I suggested in my article label you as a 'mountaineer' rather than an alpinist and now your feelings are hurt.
