Starts with wide hand jams up to a large hollow block. Climb carefully over this into a short splitter hand crack in a corner this crack eventually trends right as the angle decreases and the rock quality declines.In the face to the left you can find some small pockets that will accept small C3's or TCU's for pro stay low and traverse left to share the last 8 feet of Blood Diamond.


Left around the corner from bolted route Miner Threat and right of thin corner crack that is Blood Diamond. A steep jagged splitter hand crack in black rock on a southeast face. Shares finish and anchor with Blood Diamond.
