Albatross

Description 

Find the Diamond Boulder and use the slopey hand in the low, far underside of the overhanging boulder to start. Lock off to the slopey center pinch. Blast to the lip and hold the swing. Top out with the easy jug.

Location 

Diamond Bopulder in the Cereal Buttress Area (Above the Politition Area). The Diamond Boulder can be tricky to find but once you do it is unmistakable.

This video shows Albatross being climbed without using the detached block as a foot:



Anyone know for sure whether or not it's on?

I would also like to know about the foot, the match move feels super difficult without using the lower block.
