Didn't say it's not hard, but it's not as if you need to be superman to get in. Sure, he deserves some respect for it, as does anyone who's done that, but maybe he should have made it clearer that he was special forces reserves, as it's not quite the same. Special forces weekend regiment doesn't have quite the same ring to it now does it?
As it was said on that climbing forum, you can walk right into the SAS reserves, which you can't do with the real SAS, SBS, or even SBS reserves, and I've known enough people myself who would be more than capable of getting into the SAS reserves, but instead chose to join the regular army or marines.
Still, I wish him good luck and hope they make it.
