Burst of Brilliance is a worthy line while at the New Diversions cliff. Start up the bolted face, bust through the crux with your Burst of Brilliance to the crack above that leads to the bolted anchors.


Just right of New Diversions. It is possible to rap off of New D to the BoB anchors to toprope.


bolts plus a few cams. Single set?

Take a couple tips to finger sized cams for the top. The section above the bolts is much easier, but it's a little ways to the top.

Crux is tenuous feet/ barndoory moves out left, but only a move or two. Worth doing while you're there for sure.
