Find the Diamond Boulder and use the slopey hand in the low, far underside of the overhanging boulder to match start upon. Use the small boulder for feet. Pull on and make tough lock off moves to establish on the slopey center pinch. once established, blast to the slopey lip and bear down with your pinch strength to hold the swing. top out with the easy jug edged top.


Located on the Diamond Bopulder which is found in the Cereal Buttress Area (Above the Politition Area). The Diamond Boulder can be quite tricky to find and is off by itself from the trail. Expect to do a bit of serching to locate it, but once you do it is unmistakable. referance Chris Dorritys guide book and you will have no issues.

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.
