Comments: What's the earliest it's really advisable to do the Diamond? Can it be done in early June? Or is there too much snow on the ledges?

Comments: We summitted LBC on Thursday, November 18, 2005 and found the anchor in a mess. 2 old star drives were just laying there still attached to the webbing. The rock was shattered on top.

Comments: Did the second ascent of Brits last weekend. We tried to free it, and didn't quite get a couple of moves. It will definitely go free at 11+. The thin crack moves at the end of the first pitch are low percentage when onsighting, due to tricky gear placements. The second pitch feels like solid 5.10 OW, with a sigificant choss factor thrown in between the hard sections. The final pitch is fun OW and squeeze chimeny. I'd probably give that last pitch 5.9.

Also keep in mind that this is an a... more >>
