Diamond Point Rock Climbing
Great view of the New River from Diamond Point
The level of land rises at the last minute before this cliff, therefore no runoff!
This prominent feature is visible from the NRG bridge and will definitely be on all the trail maps for hiking and climbing that you can find about the NRG.
Diamond Point proper has a huge boulder at its base, if you are rappelling in, don't be fooled by the boulder, keep going all the way to the ground.
Rappel from Diamond Point (single rope). Accessible from Fern Point trailhead.

We do get a bit of runoff on durometer/remission, zygomatic, weatherman's, stuff on the left there...Strike a Scowl is likely the first thing in the whole gorge to dry though, I can agree with that. Also, one of my favorite TR solo areas, so long as there aren't a bunch of tourons up top throwing things down. Watch out for that.
